Domestic Conference Travel



 

Domestic Conference Travel grants are available for faculty presenting their own research or creative works, including posters, at established academic conferences. This grant does not support conference participation in other capacities (such as commentator, member of a discussion panel, or session chair). Faculty are eligible for up to $1,200 in domestic conference travel support each fiscal year (ending June 30). Grants cover non-local transportation by the most economical carrier (air, train, or personal car), conference registration fees, and hotel, for travel within the United States and its territories. Grants do provide local travel funding, i.e. travel to and from the airport or around the conference city.

 

Faculty may present at more than one conference during the academic year and are encouraged to combine travel to multiple conferences in close geographical proximity, when possible.

Program deadlines are rolling from mid-July to mid-June. Applications are not restricted to the same fiscal year, though yearly limits are measured by the fiscal year of the award, not the year of travel. In addition to populating all electronic fields, applicants must upload proof of costs, e.g. a travel website screen shot of airfare estimate or receipt and itinerary, conference registration page, and lodging registration.
