All full time members of the research faculty at UNC-CH are eligible to apply for support as well as other full time staff routinely engaged as principal investigators on scholarly or scientific research, such as librarians or curators. This program does not support travel to scholarly or scientific meetings and priority will be given to those who have not received support during the past twelve months. Small grants may be made to cover supplementary expenses involved in adding sponsor visits to travel already scheduled for other purposes.

Funds can only be disbursed upon receipt of documentation of travel costs using a signed Travel Authorization and appropriate receipts. Your department chair must also sign the application for travel support. The maximum travel grant is $400.

We require only one copy of the application form and requests may be submitted at any time. This program does not fund travel retroactively; your application must be received by the Vice Chancellor’s office before you take your trip. Decisions to fund travel will normally be made within a week of the receipt of your application. If you have questions about this program or need additional information, please contact Gail Whitfield, Office of Research Development, 962-9333.
