Faculty Accompanying Students to Professional Conferences & Events Program (FAS Program)


Applications for Academic Year 2017 - 2018 may be submitted starting August 1, 2017.


To support faculty members accompanying students to a professional conference or other professional event (e.g. competition, research site to collect data), the Provost’s Office has allocated $40,000 for a new program. These funds may be used by full-time faculty to cover their transportation, registration, and lodging expenses, when accompanying students to a qualifying conference or event. Preference will be given to faculty who are accompanying students that have an active role (e.g. a student giving a conference presentation). For full details on the program, please review the criteria below. The maximum award is $1,200 per faculty member per academic year. Funds will be awarded until they are exhausted. To apply for conferences/events through June 30, 2018, please submit your application online using the link below. Applications will be reviewed by committee including membership from faculty, staff, department chairs, and administration on an ongoing basis, with responses to applicants monthly from the Provost’s Office.
