Research Presentation Program

Faculty members in HFA present the results of their research, creative, and scholarly efforts nationally and internationally at conferences, educational institutions, professional meetings, and cultural venues. To encourage and support this activity HFA offers the Research Presentation Program. 


Applications will be accepted from all full-time HFA faculty members. This program does not support general conference attendance. Eligible faculty members may submit multiple requests up to the total amounts outlined below.

Application due date: Applications should be submitted in advance of the presentation and will not be accepted when received more than one month after the presentation date.

Maximum amount:
   $250 - per registration for online events
$1,250 - total when continental travel is involved
$1,500 - total when inter-continental travel is involved

    Application process

    Complete the online application, which should be submitted well in advance of the presentation date and must be received no later than one month following it.

    Please provide the following information:

    1. A single-page abstract of the research you will present or the paper you will give. If you will read from, perform, or exhibit your creative work, your abstract should identify and describe the material being featured and explain why it was chosen.

    2. A link to the event program, a program screenshot, or other publicity with your name, presentation title, and presentation date.

    The application will allow you to save a partially completed form and return later to complete it. It will not, however, save uploaded documents until you submit your request.

    Once you click "Submit" you will not be able to make further changes.
