Faculty Travel Support is intended for faculty participating in a conference or professional meeting by presenting a paper or other scholarly work, chairing a session, or serving as a discussant, normally evidenced by mention in the conference or meeting program; support also may be requested for attending a conference for one’s own professional development.

Faculty Travel Support is not intended to support general professional travel (such as attending editorial board meetings) that occur outside of the context of a professional conference or travel to conduct research. Requests to fund research-related travel, including participation in workshops designed to develop professional expertise, should be made to the Academic Research Committee via the Advanced Study grant mechanism. 

Requests intended for travel in support of curricular or pedagogical development or of assessment are not funded by Faculty Conference Travel; such applications undergo a separate application process.
