The Fund for Academic Enrichment
The Graduate School is now accepting applications for the Academic Enrichment Fund for the 2015-2016 academic year. The Fund for Academic Enrichment was created to enhance the graduate educational experience by funding lectures that are a part of workshops, graduate courses, seminars, exhibitions, and academic conferences hosted by the University of Texas at Austin. All funds awarded must be used to enhance the graduate educational experience at UT Austin.
All current graduate students, registered graduate student organizations, and faculty are eligible to apply.
Designated Funds for Faculty
In addition to funds available to all members of the graduate community, some funds have been designated for UT Austin faculty to travel to or from Great Britain for academic purposes. These funds can also be used to host a scholar affiliated with an academic institution in Great Britain. Funds have also been designated to foster an exchange of faculty and business leaders between the University and Monterrey, Mexico for the purpose of research and lectures.
Scope of Use
Funds are primarily awarded to cover travel, accommodations, and honorarium for speakers. Funds will likely not be awarded for receptions, group meals, equipment, room rental, or services such as parking and printing. This is not a cash award and expenditures must follow standard University procedures and policies. Non-expended funds will revert back to the Graduate School and cannot be used toward programs or expenditures not approved in the award notification letter.
