The CUNY Academy's Travel Awards for Associate Professors

Established in 2016, the CUNY Academy's
Travel Awards for Associate Professors  provide grants of up to $500 to full-time CUNY Associate Professors. The award is for presenting, chairing or moderating at a scholarly conference from July 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017.

Those who have received other awards from the CUNY Academy are fully eligible to apply.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and early applications get special consideration.

The Academy thanks the CUNY Office of Research for its support and Provost Joanne Russell  of Kingsborough Community College for her cooperation in this new venture.

This program has expended all available funds for Academic Year 2016-7.

Please apply again in the Fall of 2017.

Applications must be sent via email and email attachments to Please put the word travel  in the subject line.
