New ORSP Grant Supports Faculty Travel

The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP) has established the ORSP Faculty Travel Grant program to support tenured and tenure-track faculty members and librarians in their research, scholarship and creative activities. The program provides matching funds for domestic and international travel that advances professional development opportunities — eventually helping in faculty retention, tenure and promotion. Awards are given to support travel that enable faculty to: present their work at national and international scale peer-reviewed conferences or meetings; meet with program officers at external funding agencies; and attend federal funding agency sponsored workshops.

Preference will be given to applicants who have not received Faculty Travel Grant funding within the past two years. Applications will be accepted for each term.
