The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and Diversity is pleased to announce the 2015-16 Junior Faculty Travel Support Program for tenure-track Assistant Professors who have not yet been awarded tenure or promotion. Junior faculty members may apply for travel funds up to $500 to support the presentation of research/creative work at a major academic/professional conference. In response to feedback from junior faculty members, and in recognition of the particular challenges they face, this program is intended to supplement, not replace, Departmental/School travel funding, which will remain the primary source for funding faculty travel. Thus, cost sharing by Departments/Schools and/or Colleges is required unless the Chair/Director and/or Dean certifies that all Departmental/College travel funds have been exhausted. The Supplemental Travel Funds will match a Department/College contribution up to $500. It is expected that 30-40 junior faculty travel awards will be made during the calendar year with three (3) submission deadlines/cycles.
