Travel Assistance Fund

Travel Assistance Program Applications are being accepted for summer 2017 travel (June 1 - August 31). Supplemental funds are available to provide additional awards for planned travel or travel that has already occurred if the travel has not already been reimbursed on a voucher.

The Travel Assistance Fund enables faculty to defray some of the travel costs associated with presenting scholarly outcomes at professional conferences or attending meetings where they will receive major awards. In order to fund travel to conferences throughout the year, Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) will allocate money for fall (September 1 – January 15), spring (January 16 – May 31), and summer assistance (June 1 – August 31). It is anticipated that 20 awards will be given during the fall, 20 awards during the spring, and 10 awards during the summer. A maximum of $800 will be funded.

Applicants must be full-time faculty of Texas Woman’s University with a teaching appointment for 2016 – 2017. Adjunct faculty, faculty members with part-time employment or on modified service, and students are not eligible to apply. Only one trip per person will be funded in a fiscal year. 

Faculty may apply for funding as soon as they receive formal notification of acceptance or award. Applications must be submitted on the current form; incomplete applications cannot be sent forward for approval. Applications will be reviewed regularly at least monthly.
