The Summer Faculty Development Program will provide up to seven weeks of summer support of travel and living expenses. Applications for short duration workshops (minimum one week) that can have a high impact on research will be considered as will visiting other institutions to conduct research for a longer duration up to a maximum of seven weeks. Total funding exists to provide travel support for only up to seven weeks. Note that this program does not provide summer salary support.
