Guidelines available for travel grant programs
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is now accepting applications to two different 2018-2019 travel grant programs.
The Travel Assistance Fund program enables faculty to defray some of the travel costs associated with presenting scholarly outcomes at professional conferences and meetings that have been peer-reviewed, juried or selected by the major associations or societies in their fields. It also supports travel where they will receive a major award from those organizations. Applicants must be full-time faculty of Texas Woman’s University with a teaching appointment for 2018-2019. There is no deadline for this program; applications are accepted on a rolling deadline. Only one trip per person may be funded in a fiscal year, and a maximum of $800 per award will be funded. Application materials can be found on the ORSP website.
The Program Officer Visit Travel Grant program provides funds for TWU faculty to visit program officers. Faculty may request support for travel to attend meetings with sponsoring agency program officers in Washington, D.C. and other locations. The goal of the program is to improve the competiveness of proposals for external funding by facilitating interaction with prospective sponsors. Visits with program officers also give faculty members opportunities to provide general information about TWU. There is no deadline for this program; applications are accepted year round. Applications will be reviewed by the vice provost for research within two weeks of receipt. Application materials can be found on the ORSP website.
