Travel Grants

The Center for Faculty Excellence supports faculty development in disciplinary research, interdisciplinary research, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. We offer travel support and provide funding for presentations at conferences within the United States (applicants can receive only one travel grant per academic year).

Faculty Travel Grant: The CFE will support a limited number of individuals each semester with travel funds of up to $1000 per trip to present original research at a conference within the United States. Grant recipients will also present their work in the form of a workshop or community of practice sponsored by the CFE.

Spring 2018 travel grant applications are due November 15, 2017 (for travel occurring January - May 21, 2018).

Fall 2018 travel grant applications are due April 15, 2018 (for travel occurring August - December 2018).

We do not award travel grants for summer conferences. Award announcements will be made within 30 days of the application due date.

Outcomes & Deliverables

Recipients of this grant agree to present their research to the TAMU-CC faculty by means of CFE-sponsored events such as brown-bags, lunch & learns, workshops, and/or communities of practice. Travel grant applications must include a proposal that outlines workshop content and benefit to the university community.
