Faculty Dissemination Travel Awards

Faculty Dissemination Travel Awards are intended to promote the original research and creative work of faculty within the Sam Fox School at national and international conferences. Through the presence of faculty at significant scholarly gatherings, the School will continue to build its reputation and support the recruitment of exceptional academic peers and students.

All tenured and tenure-track faculty members are eligible to apply. To qualify for an award, faculty members must actively participate in a conference by presenting their original work or scholarship, delivering a keynote address, chairing a panel, or contributing as an invited participant on a panel or formal discussion. In addition, faculty who disseminate creative activity and research through national and international exhibitions may also qualify for an award.

Applications must be submitted to the college director. The director will then recommend proposals to the Dean’s office for final consideration. Applications must be submitted in advance of travel with adequate time for review. No awards will be made retroactively, and travel must comply with all current University protocols. Awards up to $1,200 will be given for domestic travel; awards up to $1,800 will be given for international travel. Payments will be made in the form of reimbursements through Workday. Original receipts will be required. Faculty are eligible for up to two dissemination awards per fiscal year.
