The Office of the Dean for Research and Scholarship at Calvin College administers a reserve travel fund for the purpose of assisting those faculty members who are engaged to speak at important professional meetings and whose departmental travel budgets are insufficient to cover the cost.
An application for supplemental travel funds should come only after the applicant’s departmental funds are spent or allocated;
Funding is restricted to faculty participating (speaking or presenting) in the program;
Preference is given to faculty participating in international programs over (in descending order) national meetings, regional meetings, state meetings, or local meetings of a professional nature;
When available funds are diminished, priority will be given to applicants who have not receivedsupplemental travel funding in the past year.
The maximum amount of supplemental travel funds any individual faculty member may receive in a given year is $1,500; requests exceeding $1500 will be considered under special circumstances; and
Applications must be received and approved by the dean for research and scholarship prior to the travel in question.
