The award is designed to help defray the cost of travel, supplies, and other materials necessary to conduct the project. These funds are not intended to be used to supplement any current funding or conference travel. 


Eligibility: All tenured and tenure-track faculty members (Professor, Associate Professor, and Assistant Professor) are eligible

Given equally meritorious applications, preference will be given to the support scholarship originating at GVSU, to individuals actively seeking alternative sources (particularly external sources) of support, and to individuals who have not received prior funding under this program (particularly within the past year). 


Funding Limitations: Funding will be limited to one grant per faculty member per yearAwards will consist of a maximum of $400.
