Faculty Conference Travel Awards



Faculty Conference Travel Awards 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. All tenured and tenure-track faculty members are eligible to apply.

To qualify, faculty members must actively participate in a conference by presenting their original work or scholarship, delivering a keynote address, chairing a panel, or contributing as an invited participant on a panel or formal discussion.

Applications must be submitted at least 6 weeks before travel commences. No awards will be made retroactively, and travel must comply with all current University protocols. Awards up to $1,200 will be awarded for domestic travel. Awards up to $1,800 will be awarded for international travel. Payments will be made in the form of reimbursements through Workday. Original receipts will be required. Faculty are eligible for up to two conference travel awards per fiscal year.
