AWARD ELIGIBILITY:

Full-time UWM tenure-track faculty are eligible to apply for Center for International Education (CIE) international travel awards.  A maximum of $500 will be provided for each award.

Faculty who have received CIE faculty travel awards within the preceding fiscal year are not eligible for an award in the current fiscal year.

SCOPE OF AWARD:

Awards will be given partially to defray University-approved travel expenses (transportation, room, board, and conference fees). To be eligible for support, travel must comply with University travel policies.

Awards will be limited to support for:
  • research leading to results expected to be disseminated in scholarly papers, books, or other means;
  • formal participation, performance, or exhibition outside the U.S.  Participation is defined as presenting the results of research at an international professional meeting, not merely attending a conference. Appropriate documentation must be submitted;
