2019 Sessional Faculty Travel Grants


Updated Application Deadline: April 30, 2019
Applications received after this date will not be accepted.

The UBC Faculty Association and UBC are pleased to announce travel grants for sessional faculty who will be presenting papers at academic conferences in 2019.

Depending on demand, this year’s grant will have a maximum value of up to $1800.00 and may be used for travel, accommodation, conference fees and meals (UBC per diem). You may claim expenses for presenting at a conference you attend in 2019 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 2019. (For example, you may claim expenses for a conference you present at during the summer when you return to teaching at UBC again during the 2019 winter term.)

If you anticipate that you will be delivering a conference paper this year and would like to apply for one of these grants, please complete the Application Form available on the UBCFA website and on the Faculty Relations website and forward it to the UBC Faculty Association at [email protected] by April 30, 2019. Applications made after this date will not be accepted. Successful applicants will be notified.
