2019 SEC Travel Grant - Call For Applications

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) Visiting Faculty Travel Grant Program is intended to enhance faculty collaboration that stimulates scholarly initiatives between SEC universities. The travel grant program provides faculty from one SEC university the opportunity to travel to another SEC campus to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, and conduct research. 

The University of Kentucky will select faculty members to receive 2019-2020 grants for transportation, room, board, etc.  (The total SEC allocation to each university is $10,000, therefore the maximum award is capped at $2500, with requests of lower amounts encouraged). Travel dates for these visits must be completed by July 31, 2020. After receiving approval from their department chair/director, the faculty member will contact the host unit they wish to visit, in order to determine that unit’s receptivity and availability. The selected faculty members will be responsible for arranging coverage of their duties during their absence. After the visit, the faculty member will submit a brief report, describing the outcomes of the visit to their department chair, who will forward the outcomes to the Office for Faculty Advancement.
