The Office of the Associate Dean for Research announces the establishment of the COLA Lecturer Travel Grant program. While faculty travel grants are available to Distinguished Senior Lecturers and Senior Lecturers, they are not available to Lecturers.
The Dean’s office will award ten grants of $500 each yearly to lecturers in support of travel to present original research at an academic conference. We encourage lecturers who meet the below criteria to apply!
In this first year of the grants, awards will be made on a first come, first served basis, and will be available year round while they last.
●Lecturers from all COLA units, with at least two years of service at UT Austin, are invited to apply
●Our focus in this grant is on pedagogy—the presentation must address a topic in pedagogy and should, ideally, relate to the lecturer’s line of work and to the needs of the department.
●Distinguished Senior Lecturers and Senior Lecturers are not eligible for this grant.
Applications must include:
1. Application form with the applicant's signature and the chair’s certification.
2. A copy of the meeting program showing the lecturer's name, presentation topic, and presentation date; or a letter from the meeting organizer accepting the presentation and confirming the lecturer’s participation in the program.
3. An abstract (not exceeding one page in length) of the presentation to be given.
Please contact Lauren Apter with any questions.
