Sessional Travel Grants deadline extended

by Faculty Association | Filed under December 2012.

Application Deadline: January 31, 2013

In recognition of the contributions of sessionals to the academic environment the Association is awarding Sessional Travel Grants. Three grants of up to $1,800 each are available.

These grants serve to support the academic goals of sessional members of the Faculty Association of the University of Calgary by providing funding for a portion of travel costs related to making scholarly presentations and/or attending conferences. 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, 2011 and December 31, 2012. Applicants must also be contracted at the University of Calgary for the Fall 2012 and/or Winter 2013 semesters. Travel must be completed by August 31, 2013.

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 first consideration.
