Sessional Travel Grants available

by Faculty Association | Filed under Fair Employment Week, October 2017.

In recognition of the contributions of sessionals to the academic environment the Association is awarding Sessional Travel Grants. Four grants of up to $1,500 each are available. The deadline for application is January 12, 2018.

These grants serve to support the academic goals of sessional members of the Faculty Association by providing funding for a portion of travel costs related to scholarly activity in their field. The selection of recipients is at the discretion of the Personnel Committee; however priority will normally be given to those who are presenting papers, giving scholarly presentations, or otherwise playing a significant role at an academic event. The purpose of these grants is to provide these members an opportunity to profile their research, remain current in their fields, and thereby benefit the University with their enhanced expertise and profile.

Sessional applicants must have completed at least three (3) half-course equivalents at the University of Calgary between September 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017. Applicants must also be contracted at the University of Calgary for the Fall 2017 and/or Winter 2018 semesters. Travel must be completed by December 31, 2018.

Grant recipients will be selected by the Faculty Association based on the quality of their application and the relevance of the conference/scholarly activity to the research/field of study.
