Division of Humanities & the Arts Faculty Travel Program 2019 - 2020

The Division of Humanities and the Arts is pleased to announce a new round of the Divisional Faculty Travel Program. The program supports scholarly endeavors in the Humanities and Arts. Typically, faculty have used these funds to attend conferences or to disseminate the results of their scholarly and creative activity, but the funds may also be used to support travel for research or other endeavors critical to the completion of a scholarly or creative arts project.

Two Requests for Proposals will be issued in the Academic Year 2019-2020: one in early September 2019; the other in early February 2020.  During the first RFP period preference will be given to travel completed between July 1 and December 31, 2019.  All travel must occur or have occurred between July 1, 2019 and May 31, 2020.

The program is open to full-time tenured, CCE, tenure-track, and CCE-line faculty. It is funded from tax-levy and philanthropic funds. Faculty Travel awards generally cannot fund 100% of the expenses but rather provide assistance to defray a significant portion of the travel costs. Faculty are always encouraged to explore other sources of funding, including the Office of the Provost.

Faculty may apply for domestic or foreign travel.
