Conference Travel Grant
*N.B., THIS INFORMATION IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE,
DEPENDING ON THE UNIVERSITY’S GUIDANCE REGARDING FUNDED TRAVEL.*
The purpose of these awards is to support the efforts of Florida State University’s Modern Languages and Linguistics’ faculty involved in active research as they participate in conferences. These funds are for 9/12 months faculty and 9/12 months teaching faculty. They may be used only for conference travel-related expenses where the participant is presenting a paper. Evidence of conference presentation will be a factor in determining the bestowal and the amount of the award.
All eligible faculty are expected to exhaust all other travel funds available to them before applying for the Winthrop-King Travel Grant. The Winthrop-King Grant can then be used to supplement either a Provost’s Travel Grant or other departmental grant. If awarded both a Winthrop-King Travel Grant and a Provost’s Travel Grant, the applicant will be expected to draw first in full on the other grants, to be supplemented by Winthrop-King funding up to a total grant level not exceeding the total approved travel expenditures applied for.
In the first round of funding (Fall Semester), applications are considered for travel only in the Fall Semester. In the second round of funding (Spring Semester), applications are considered only for travel in the spring and summer semesters. Faculty will be notified of the outcome of their applications during the month following the deadline for applications.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS:
October 10, 2021, for conference travel in Fall 2021 semester.
February 10, 2022, for conference travel in Spring 2022 and summer 2022 semesters.
Applications may be made while awaiting acceptance of a conference paper proposal; if funding is awarded, this will be conditional upon receipt of documentation showing acceptance of your paper for inclusion in the conference program.
Do not submit your conference receipts with your application
No faculty member will be awarded more than $600 for national conferences, and no more than $800 for conferences held outside the United States. No faculty members will receive more than one travel award per academic year.
