Each academic year, a Sessional Travel Fund Committee will distribute a Sessional Travel Fund of thirty thousand dollars ($30,000) amongst eligible Sessional appointees to reimburse certain travel expenses per the Collective Agreement. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, there are changes to the eligible expenses that can be reimbursed.
Items eligible for the Winter 2021 submissions include:
- Attendance to online and virtual events, including events at the University of Calgary;
- Professional and/or technology items that make virtual attendance possible to the online event, such as webcams or headsets (max $200 per claim, no computers or software); and
- Activities (such as online courses, or seminars) that support the development of teaching practice or scholarly activities.
Visit the University’s HR website for more information and to apply for this fund.
