Faculty Dependent Travel Care Initiative
This initiative will provide funding for dependent care expenses incurred by tenure/tenure-track faculty due to travel to a professional conference, workshop, symposium, or other professional development meeting. Examples of such expenses include, but are not limited to: additional child care expenses, cost of transporting a child and/or caregiver to a professional conference, additional elder care expenses, and overnight caregiver costs incurred at home. Awards will be paid as additional compensation and are considered taxable income.
Please note that funding for conference travel must be secured prior to seeking funds through this initiative. Applications are due by September 15, 2021 (for Fall 2021 requests) and by January 26, 2022 (for Spring/Summer 2022 requests). Contact Alex Howard in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs with any questions.
