The Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE) is accepting proposals for the Professional Development Travel Grant for early-career faculty. All full-time, pre-tenure, tenure-track faculty, and pre-promotion non-tenure-track faculty are eligible for up to $1,000 per academic year.

Funding can be requested for faculty to travel to a conference or workshop that will benefit professional development or to meet with fund managers. Funding can support registration fees, airfare, hotel and per diem for travel. If the total cost exceeds $1,000, faculty may seek matching funds from their department or college.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis as long as funding is available.

To apply, submit a one-page, single-spaced proposal that clearly identifies the conference or workshop name, location and dates, or the location of the fund managers. Include a description of how the activities will benefit your professional development.

Mark your calendar for 4-5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, to hear how early career faculty used this fund last year to enhance their professional development.
