Travel Grants for Attending Teaching Conferences
Description: Travel grants of up to $1000 are designed to support and encourage attendance at off-campus workshops or seminars on pedagogy or conferences directly related to pedagogy and devoted to the applicant's professional development as a teacher. These events may be discipline-specific or higher education pedagogy-focused. The purpose of participation must be directly related to improving instruction in Dartmouth courses and programs.
Eligibility: Any Dartmouth faculty, graduate student and professional staff who are directly involved with student instruction.
Selection Criteria: Funds will be awarded to applicants who make a clear case for how attendance will contribute to their pedagogy, course design, or understanding of student learning.
Application and Award Process:
- Complete the application for DCAL Travel Grant
- Secure the signature of the chair, program director or dean confirming that the applicant is eligible for a travel grant and that the travel falls outside the normal scope of the departmental budget.
