Travel Grants available for Sessional Faculty in 2016

The Sessional Conference/Travel Grant Fund

The UBC Faculty Association and UBC are pleased to announce travel grants for sessional faculty who will be presenting papers at academic conferences in 2016.

Depending on demand, each grant will have a maximum value of up to $1000 and may be used for travel, accommodation, and conference fees. You may claim expenses for presenting at a conference you attend in 2016 while you are on contract at UBC, or for a conference while you are on leave so long as you return to UBC later in 2016. (For example, you may claim expenses for a conference you attend during the summer so long as you are teaching at UBC in the fall.)

If you anticipate that you will be delivering a conference paper this year and would like to apply for one of these grants, please fill in the attached Application Form and forward it to the UBC Faculty Association at faculty.association@ubc.ca by February 28, 2016.

Successful applicants will be notified.
