|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, 2017 to June 30, 2018.
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.
Due to the popular demand and the usage of all the available funds we are not accepting any new application.
We may not be able to fund all submitted expenses. Payment of the awards will be done through college business offices during May 2018. Award amounts will range from $100 (for nearby travel) to $500 (for travel to more distant points.)
1. Applicants apply for the award either before or after they travel to the conference. Applications will not be accepted after April 30, 2018 or after we run out of funds, whichever comes first. First come, first served.
2. Applicants receive approval for the award from the CUNY Academy on a rolling basis for conferences that take place between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.

4. On or about April 30, 2018, the CUNY Academy arranges for the funds to become available to applicants.
