Faculty Travel Special Update - (Updated July 2, 2014)

For the fiscal year starting July 1, 2014, faculty are eligible to receive up to $575 from the Provost Travel Award for the presentation of research/creative works at professional meetings and events.

Faculty can receive up to two awards per year. Awards must be in separate semesters.

We DO NOT fund:
  • Non-presenting participants
  • Attending board meetings for which are you an officer
  • Presenting as part of a panel that requires little preliminary preparation beforehand. Simply, the presentation you are requesting must be equivalent to preparing for a full, scholarly presentation.

The Provost Travel Awards will no longer cover registrations.

Should you apply now? YES! You must apply at least two weeks prior to travel and but no more than six months before you travel. You are required to submit paperwork within two weeks of your return to the CITR office. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of your award. Please consult the procedures outlined on this page.

If you are unclear about anything on the award application, the policies, or when awards will be funded, contact the CITR office at 309/298-2434 or
