SBS Conference and Visitor Grants

SBS Conference and Visitors Grants are funds to bring a speaker or colleague to campus or to host a conference or workshop on campus. Successful events are those that have a clear and direct benefit to the professional development and/or research capacity of faculty across the college, not just in a single department. Complete applications should include the following:

  • The applicant's CV.
  • A brief but detailed total budget for the grant application.
  • A proposal narrative, which should be no longer than 1,000 words.
  • If support for a visitor is included, attach a short vitae (no more than one page) or description sufficient to evaluate need and merit.

Up to $2,000 support with matches from other sources, preferably from the primary department and a second department. Please indicate the source of the matching funds.

The deadlines for applications is October 14, 2022. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Lundquist, Senior Associate Dean of Research and Faculty Development.
