Travel Grants

The Teaching Excellence Program encourages faculty to attend conferences related to pedagogical development.  This may be a teaching conference or a pre-conference associated with a professional meeting. 

Faculty may apply for up to $1500 towards registration and travel costs. Recipients of a travel grant from TEP are asked to lead a round-table discussion and/or an interactive presentation about what they learned.

Please note: No more than two grant applications will be funded for the same conference.  All Lewis & Clark travel policies apply.
