Faculty Accompanying Students to Professional Conferences & Events Program (FAS Program)


Due to cuts to the University budget, the Provost's Office is not funding the FAS Grant in academic year 2020-2021


To support faculty members accompanying students to a professional conference or other professional event (e.g. competition, research site to collect data), the Provost’s Office has allocated $40,000 for a new program. These funds may be used by full-time faculty to cover their transportation, registration, and lodging expenses, when accompanying students to a qualifying conference or event. Preference will be given to faculty who are accompanying students that have an active role (e.g. a student giving a conference presentation). For full details on the program, please review the criteria below. The maximum award is $1,200 per faculty member per academic year. Funds will be awarded until they are exhausted. To apply for conferences/events through June 30, 2020, please submit your application online using the link below. Applications are reviewed once a month. Responses from the Provost’s Office are sent to applicants monthly.
