Travel Fund Application

High Country Humanities Travel Fund

The High Country Humanities (HCH) Travel Fund provides resources to support College of Arts and Sciences faculty engaged in humanities-focused research by enabling them to travel to present papers and works-in-progress at academic conferences. (Faculty seeking support for travel to archives or other research sites should apply for a CAS SAFE Fund grant instead.)

These funds are intended to be supplementary. The award amounts will usually range from $100 to $1,200, but the typical award is expected to be about $700. Whenever possible, applicants should secure funding from other sources before submitting their HCH Travel Fund application. Chrome River travel pre-approval must be completed before any purchases are made. Any purchases made prior to approval cannot be reimbursed. Travel must be reimbursed in fiscal year 2024.
