Faculty Travel Grants

Domestic and international travel grants support faculty travel to national and international conferences for the purpose of presenting and discussing novel research results or creative work. Travel grants are limited to one virtual or domestic trip (U.S., Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico) per fiscal year. Alternatively, funding for an international trip may be requested every other year, in lieu of virtual/domestic travel. Note that faculty travel grants are not subject to the list of restricted states covered by AB 1887; that policy only applies to state funds (i.e. faculty research grants).

Application deadline: at least 21 days in advance of participation.

Award amounts are:

  • $250.00 - Virtual
  • $450.00 - California
  • $900.00 - All other U.S. locations, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico
  • $1,500.00 - Asia, Africa, Europe, Central or South America, South Pacific
