Faculty Conference Travel Grants

Faculty conference travel grants are intended to promote the original research and creative work of faculty within the Sam Fox School at national and international conferences. Through the presence of faculty at significant scholarly gatherings, the School will continue to build its reputation and support the recruitment of exceptional academic peers and students. Typically, faculty are required to be present research/creative activity, deliver a keynote or lecture, or facilitate a panel to be funded. All tenured and tenure-track faculty members are eligible to apply.

For Fall 2020, University-sponsored travel will not be allowed due to COVID-19. However, the School will cover registration fees for virtual conferences. On a case-by-case basis, funding may be available to faculty who are not actively presenting, but would benefit significantly from taking part in a conference for their teaching, research, or service.

Applications must be submitted at least 2 weeks before the conference. No awards will be made retroactively. Grants up to $500 will be made for virtual conference participation. Payments will be made in the form of reimbursements. Digital receipts will be required. Faculty are eligible for up to two conference travel grant awards per fiscal year.
