Travel funds available for UCCE specialists to collaborate
ANR will be making additional travel support available for UC Cooperative Extension specialists to collaborate with ANR academics off-campus, including UCCE advisors in the counties and ANR academics at the research and extension centers in FY 2017/18.
With the level of funds available, each specialist may apply for up to $2,500 for FY 2017/18 (travel reports must be submitted within 45 days of travel, and funds must be expended by June 30, 2018). These travel funds must be used by the UCCE specialists only and cannot be used for out-of-state travel.
Completing a short online survey is the only step in accessing these funds.
A brief survey form is accessible from your ANR Portal. The survey asks
• Name and title of specialist requesting support
• Project/Program name
• Brief project description (one paragraph)
• Collaborating advisors
While there is no deadline for applications for these travel funds, they must be expended in the current fiscal year.
"We are pleased that we are able to take this step to assist in meeting an identified need," said Wendy Powers, associate vice president.
UCCE specialists may apply for funds directly at http://ucanr.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=18400.
