Teaching Professors can apply for funding up to $1000 to attend a conference or for any other research/teaching development related expenses. In exceptional cases, more than $1000 can be requested and the Chair will consult with the Executive Committee. Two requests can be submitted per academic year. If eligible, applicants must first apply for Arts & Sciences Instructor Travel Fund and Arts and Sciences Fund for Excellence or, if applicable, the CHA Small Grant. Application procedure: Send a brief email with reason for request, amount requested, and a summary budget (no quotes needed) to the chair who can decide or can consult the Executive Committee.  In email to chair, include dates of travel, reason for travel (name of conference, etc.) and 1-2 sentences explaining how travel relates to the academic mission of the university.  Please also note status of other grants applications. (This grant depends on the availability of GSLL faculty research funds.)
