Applications are accepted throughout the year
Maximum amount: $1,000 per faculty member per fiscal year
Faculty members in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts present the results of their research, creative, and scholarly efforts at conferences, educational institutions, and professional meetings world-wide. To encourage and support this activity the College and the University's Office of Research and Engagement developed the Faculty Presentation Fund program.
Faculty members may apply for up to $1,000 in a fiscal year to be applied to costs associated with professional presentations during that same fiscal year. These funds may be applied to expenses such as registration fees, airfare, lodging, meals (per diem), etc. This money may be directed toward a single or toward multiple presentations. We encourage the submission of applications one month or more in advance of the presentation date.
Applications will be accepted from all full-time CHFA faculty members.
If you are requesting funds for multiple presentations, you must submit a separate application for each.
