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.
Below are a few examples of conferences faculty attended with travel grants from the Teaching Excellence Program:
-American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages
-American Studies Association Conference
-Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) STEM Leadership Institute, Association of American Colleges and Universities
-Confederation in Oregon for Language Teaching
-Conference on College Composition and Communication
-Congress of Research in Dance/Society of Dance History Scholars Conference
-Modern Languages Association Conference
-Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language
-Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) International Association Convention

TEP is no longer accepting applications for travel during the current fiscal year. TEP will accept Travel Grant Applications for travel occurring after August 1, 2019.
