International Travel Supplement*
Faculty who are presenting scholarly papers or creative work at professional meetings held outside of the U.S. may apply for up to $500 in additional funding to help with increased expenses such as money changing, visa application (but not passport fees), increased travel costs, etc. The supplement for presenting at an international conference is available only when the location of the presentation is germane to the paper topic or when a convincing case can be made that presenting at a particular international conference is critical for remaining actively engaged in one's professional discipline. International Conference funds are supplemental to the regular professional funds available to faculty. The basic $1,200 allocation must be used first. Funds allocated but not used will be returned to the International Travel Fund for use by other faculty. Applications should be submitted to the John S. Kendall Center for Engaged Learning when the proposal to present is submitted to the conference.
* Since costs associated with traveling to Canada are not significantly more expensive than domestic U.S. travel, the international supplement is not available for professional travel to conferences in Canada, effective June 1, 2009.
Please see the section on travel on the All-College Policies site for eligibility and other detailed information. Application forms are available from the Faculty Development Resource Center and online below; see the Procedures page to find out how you may use your funds. Contact the John S.
