Professional Society Meeting Travel Funds
PROFESSIONAL SOCIETY MEETING REIMBURSEMENT REQUEST July 1 through December 31, 2021
DEADLINE FOR ONLINE SUBMISSION Monday, September 6th 2021 @ 5:00 PM (SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED ELECTRONICALLY ONLY ... NO EXCEPTIONS!)
The Academic Assembly Council (AAC) offers travel awards to support travel to professional society meetings, primarily for the reporting and exchange of knowledge among members.
With this call, we will allocate funding for UC ANR academics to attend virtual or in-person events through December 31st, 2021. However, we only allocating funding based on actual expenses, rather than awarding a flat amount of $650 per meeting.
Cooperative Extension academics are eligible for one meeting approval per fiscal year (July 1–June 30). As these funding request calls are held twice a year, the next will be sent out in late fall to cover the period January 1st to June 30th, 2022.
Applications are scored based on set criteria. Priority scoring is given to applicants new to their positions, presenting papers, or with special functions within the society/meeting.
