Funding for Travel & Research
Academic Travel Fund
Full-time faculty members are eligible for up to $1750 in funding available each academic year. The Academic Travel Fund is managed through the Dean of the Faculty in Academic Affairs. Faculty members submit one application through Forms Manager (Academic Travel Fund Request) and reviewed and approved by the department chair, Academic Affairs staff, and the Dean of the Faculty. Academic Affairs processes requests on a rolling basis, and colleagues may submit multiple reimbursement requests each academic year up to the total of $1750. Should a single request exceed $1,750, the faculty member will need to apply for professional development funds through FDRC. The scope of activities covered under the Academic Travel Fund is laid out in the guidelines for Academic Travel Fund and FDRC Grants.
