The college offers a program to fund CAST faculty who travel to present research results and instructional activities at conferences or conventions.
The purpose of this program is to encourage and reward the scholarly activities of CAST faculty. It is anticipated that faculty will make these presentations and turn them into refereed publications supported by the CAST Publication Incentive Program.
Faculty members are eligible for up to $500 annually in travel funds to present the results of research and instructional activities at a conference. The travel funding is intended to offset the cost of presenting the research at a single conference. When a presentation abstract is accepted, an application for a Presentation Travel Grant may be submitted and, if awarded, the travel funds are to be applied to the conference where the abstract has been accepted. Careful planning is encouraged to ensure that the application is submitted prior to travel to the conference and that all receipts for reimbursement are submitted in a timely manner as per university policies.
Submit your application by e-mail to the head of your academic unit. After reviewing your application to assure adherence to the guidelines, the head of your academic unit will e-mail it to email@example.com. If accepted, you will receive a letter indicating the amount of the award. When you apply for reimbursement, enclose a copy of the offer letter with your travel claim. Funds must be spent within one calendar year.
