The Center provides opportunities for financial support to faculty who are engaged in individual research that requires visits to libraries, museums, collections, sites, or archives.
Grants for international travel are currently capped at three thousand six hundred ($3600) dollars; awards for domestic travel are capped at two thousand ($2000) dollars.
Fall 2020: The Board will meet on the first Friday of each month in fall 2020, including Sept. 4, Oct. 2, Nov. 6, and Dec. 4. Please submit funding requests one week in advance of any given meeting, to ensure consideration at that meeting. Spring deadlines fall on Aug. 28, Sept. 25, Oct. 30, and Nov. 27. In general, requests for retroactive funding will not be considered, but faculty may inquire with the Director if extenuating circumstances arise.
The following criteria will guide the Board in its deliberations:
In addition to addressing the criteria above, proposals should include an overview of the research project to be served by the proposed travel, and must include the applicant’s current curriculum vitae. A detailed itinerary and projected budget is required.
Because travel grants are a relatively costly way of advancing research, the Board of the Center awards only a few each year, depending on the funds available each year, the programmatic priorities established each year, and the number and size of requests received.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with the Director of the Center well in advance of submitting a proposal. Preliminary inquiries may be emailed to email@example.com.
Applications should be submitted via email as attachments in a standard document format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
