2017 Travel Grants Available for Sessional Faculty

The Sessional Conference Fund Travel Grants

The UBC Faculty Association and UBC are pleased to announce travel grants for sessional faculty who will be presenting papers at academic conferences in 2017.

Depending on demand, each grant will have a maximum value of up to $1500 and may be used for travel, accommodation, and conference fees. You may claim expenses for presenting at a conference you attend in 2017 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 2017. (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 Application Form available at this link) and forward it to the UBC Faculty Association at faculty.association@ubc.ca by Friday, March 24, 2017 (Revised submission date). Successful applicants will be notified.
