MU-ADVANCE Path Forward Committee Faculty and Student Travel Awards
The MU-ADVANCE Path Forward Committee now offers travel grants for female faculty and students in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. These are to aid faculty seeking to enhance networking (e.g., travel to national meetings), grant proposal submissions, interdisciplinary research efforts, or manuscript preparation. For non-tenured faculty, these activities are expected to tangibly enhance faculty careers. Travel awards for students are meant to allow them to present at national meetings or attend workshops that will enhance their careers. The annual deadline is October 31 for the faculty and student applications. More information
