The Faculty Accompanying Students (FAS) Grant was created to support faculty members accompanying students to a professional conference or other professional event (e.g. competition, research site to collect data, etc.).  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).

The maximum award is $1,200 per faculty member per academic year. Funds will be awarded until the $40,000 for annual funding for the FAS Grant program is exhausted.
