International Support Grants

International Performance and Presentation Grants (IPPG)

Overview: The IPPG provides travel funds for CLAHS faculty presenting or performing at international sites.  The Office of the Dean (OOD) will match up to $1,500 of funds secured by the applicant. It is expected that the applicant’s home academic unit will provide some funding. Applicants may utilize a variety of funding sources to secure a match from OOD (from other units/centers, grants, startup resources, professional development funds etc.). Faculty with funding from other sources that could be used for these purposes should use all such available funding first, and request supplemental IPPG support only if they still have unmet financial need. Sources of support for proposals must be confirmed when the application is submitted. Funds will be transferred to the applicant’s academic unit, which will be responsible for their management and dispersal. Continuation of this program depends on available budgetary support. Any changes to this grant program including the application will be posted on this webpage.

Eligibility: Faculty: tenured, tenure-track, collegiate, instructors, professors of practice, clinical faculty, visiting professors, research professors, and postdocs with continuing appointments. Not eligible: graduate students, faculty/ postdocs on one-year appointments, part-time adjuncts.  Faculty may receive only one IPPG each fiscal year,  July to June (based on presentation/performance dates).

Sites: Conferences, workshops, university symposia, meetings, performance venues etc. where a faculty member is presenting or performing at an international location (outside of the U.S. and its territories).  Faculty presentation or performance must be confirmed (on a program or flyer, email, or other notification attached to the application).

Application Deadlines: Applications are due by the 15th of each month (irrespective of whether the date falls on a business day).  Applications submitted after the 15th of the month will be reviewed the following month. Faculty may submit applications when they can confirm presentation / performance and funding that will be used for the match.
