  • Partial support is available to faculty members who present a paper or poster at a professionally organized conference. The conference must be a society conference or a conference sponsored by a professional organization. Typically these organizations have an annual meeting, in addition there is membership, regisration fees, call for papers, peer review of submissions, and so forth. This award does not cover invited lectures, working groups, at hoc conferences, time-limited organizations, or informal gatherings of scholars. For those events, faculty members are encouraged to use their discretionary funds. No post awards will be given.
  • A website for the meeting and evidence of the acceptance of a presentation must be included for the proposal to be considered for funding.
  • Please present a detailed budget (e.g., quotes for airfare, hotel, ground transportation, registration)
