Faculty/Staff Field ResearchTravel Awards

The Center for International Education (CIE) and the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) plan to award travel funding to faculty and academic staff for development or implementation of overseas field research experiences for undergraduates. Most awards are expected to be in the $1000-$3000 range. It is possible that a more ambitious project that promises to lead to long-term institutionalization of overseas research experiences for undergraduates could be funded at up to $10,000.

Awards may be used to support faculty/academic staff and/or student travel in accordance with UWM and UW System travel policies. Allowable travel costs include: transportation, lodging and per diem expenses. Awards may not be used to pay for faculty salary and benefits. Other anticipated research costs may be considered by the selection committee and should be listed and explained in the proposal budget; please note, however, that the primary purpose of these funds is to support travel rather than faculty members’ research expenses.
