Sessional Travel Grants awarded

by Faculty Association | Filed under Gazette, March 2017.

The Faculty Association would like to congratulate Michael Czuba (Faculty of Arts, School of Creative and Performing Arts) and Awah Mfossi Sidjeck (Faculty of Arts, Department of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures), recipients of this year’s Sessional Travel Grants. 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. Although the Association is pleased to be able to provide these opportunities for sessionals, it also speaks to the lack of support available for these academic staff.
