Sessional Travel Grants available

by Faculty Association | Filed under Fair Employment Week, October 2014.

In recognition of the contributions of sessionals to the academic environment the Association is awarding Sessional Travel Grants. Three grants of up to $2,000 each are available. The deadline for application is December 15, 2014.

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 making scholarly presentations, attending conferences, or other scholarly activity in their field. The purpose of this grant 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, 2013 and December 31, 2014. Applicants must also be contracted at the University of Calgary for the Fall 2014 and/or Winter 2015 semesters. Travel must be completed by December 31, 2015.

Grant recipients will be selected by the Faculty Association based on the quality of their application and the relevance of the conference to the research/field of study. Sessionals making scholarly presentations will normally be given priority.
