Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Will Faculty Scholarships fund travel to professional meetings?
These scholarships do not usually fund travel to annual or general purpose meetings. They can fund travel to special or one-of-a-kind meetings that have a narrowly-defined pedagogical or curricular focus. They may also fund extra expenses incurred by faculty who wish to attend particularly relevant pre-convention or post-convention workshops. Applications must clearly show the connection between specific sessions at such meetings and specific classroom activities in particular courses. (Copies of the syllabi for affected courses should be attached). Applicants should also explain why the information or skills offered are not available in print, or though internet discussion groups, or through other means.
2. Will Faculty Scholarships fund international travel?
Faculty members may receive up to $1,500.00 per year in Faculty Scholarships. While scholarships for activities occurring in the United States are limited to $750 each occurence (twice per year), faculty members participating in approved international activities may receive up to $1,500.00 maximum. Those who do, however, are not eligible to apply for any other Faculty scholarships during that academic year. See the Office of International Programs for their grant opportunities as well.
