Travel Funds Program

On occasion it is important for faculty to travel to funding agencies, especially federal agencies, to discuss specific RFPs or RFAs. There are also occasions when faculty members are invited to such funding agencies to discuss their individual proposals. The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research has limited funds that can be made available to assist with travel etc. for such specific occasions.
