A limited amount of travel funding is available to help defray the expenses of faculty members who attend professional conferences, etc. For travel within the United States and Canada, the Jacobs School of Music faculty Travel Funding Committee establishes deadlines each year for applications and determines the amount and number of awards. Given the very limited nature of the funds available, faculty are encouraged to find other sources of funding (publishers, sponsors, etc.) so that as many faculty as possible may be helped.
Support for travel to deliver papers at international professional conferences (or comparable activities) is available through the Overseas Conference Grant administered by the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org).
