2017-18 Southeastern Conference (SEC) Visiting Faculty Travel Grant Program

The Office of Research and Engagement is accepting applications for the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Visiting Faculty Travel Grant Program.

The SEC Visiting Faculty Travel Grant Program is intended to enhance faculty collaboration that stimulates scholarly initiatives between SEC universities. It gives faculty members from one SEC university the opportunity to travel to another SEC campus to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, conduct research, consult with faculty and/or students, offer lectures or symposia, present a recital, or engage in whatever activities are agreeable to the visitor and host unit.

The selection committee will give preference to proposals intended to develop new or continue recent collaborations between faculty members. Proximity to the Knoxville campus will not be a factor. Travel dates for these visits are between August 1, 2017 and July 15, 2018. Requests of up to $1,500 will be considered.

UT faculty members must request a letter of invitation from a department head or dean at the host SEC university.

Details regarding the application process and required information can be found here. Applications must be submitted as a single PDF document attached to an email and sent to arutenberg@utk.edu by 5:00 pm on Monday, July 10, 2017. Award notifications will be sent by email by July 21, 2017.

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
