Faculty Travel Program

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce a CCNY program to provide funds for Conference/Event Travel and/or travel to visit Program Managers at Funding Agencies or Foundations. This program has been set up in response to the many faculty members that have expressed frustration with limited OTPS travel budgets and with the tax-levy reimbursement process.


The program is available only to full-time faculty at CCNY. Funds will be made available from the Indirect Return generated by grants awarded to CCNY faculty through the Research Foundation.  Eligible faculty may receive a limited number of each type of  travel award (Domestic Conference/Event, International Conference/Event, or Domestic Agency/Foundation Visit).

The program is not designed to provide 100% of the expenses but rather to assist by defraying a significant part of the cost of these trips. We encourage you to leverage the remaining costs from other sources.


There will be three deadlines for applications per year, and the request must be made before you take the trip.  Emergency, out-of-cycle requests submitted between deadlines will be considered only in extenuating circumstances.

  • November 30
  • March 31
  • July 31

If the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline will be the next business day.

Guidelines and Application Form

IMPORTANT NOTE: Applications are currently being accepted for travel in FY 2014 only.  Conferences and Agency visits MUST begin before June 30, 2014 to be eligible for support.
