Sessional Travel Grants available

by Faculty Association | Filed under Fair Employment Week, October 2016.

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 14, 2016.

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, 2015 and December 31, 2016. Applicants must also be contracted at the University of Calgary for the Fall 2016 and/or Winter 2017 semesters. Travel must be completed by December 31, 2017.

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. Sessionals making scholarly presentations or undertaking a similar scholarly endeavor appropriate for their field of work will normally be given priority consideration.
