Tenured/tenure-track faculty at all ranks and all lecturers are eligible for the award. Please direct any questions to Kate Hamel, Assistant Dean for Faculty Development:

In recognition of the importance of conferences in the professional development of scholarly skills and dissemination of research, the College of Health & Social Sciences is offering travel awards for faculty to support the presentation of their peer-reviewed scholarship at professional conferences.

The award will cover expenses (conference registration, hotel, airfare only) up a maximum of $1200; the maximum for lecturers below a .6 timebase will be prorated on the basis of their timebase during the semester they apply; lecturers at a .6 timebase or above will receive full funding up to the maximum of $1200.  Support will only be awarded for one trip per fiscal year.

The conference must take place by 08/30/23. If approved, travelers must submit a) documentation to verify the acceptance of their peer-reviewed presentation and b) travel request and expenses through Concur to get their reimbursement from the University: in-state – two (2) weeks or sooner from travel dates, out-of-state – three (3) weeks or sooner from travel dates, international – seven (7) weeks or sooner from travel dates; conference registration requires approval of Concur travel request before paying for registration. Receipts will be due within 0-30 days of return and no post travel transactions will be allowed. Tenured/tenure-track faculty at all ranks and all lecturers are eligible for the award.

The review of applications will be on a rolling basis and will begin on September 26, 2022.  Half of the funding will be available for applications submitted between September 26, 2022 and January 30, 2023 and the other half for submissions between February 1 and June 30, 2023.  Awards will be given out on a first-come basis during each application period according to need until the funds are gone.
