What is a FAS Grant?

To support faculty members accompanying students to a professional conference or other professional event (e.g. competition, research site to collect data, etc.), the Provost’s Office has allocated $40,000 annually 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 FAS Grant Criteria below.  The maximum award is $1,200 per faculty member per academic year. Funds will be awarded until exhausted.  To apply for conferences/events through, please submit your application online using the link below.  Applications are reviewed once submitted.  Responses and communication will be through Jake Leask, assistant in the Office of Faculty Affairs.
