What are Pedagogy Travel Grants?
Pedagogy Travel Grants offer faculty funding to attend a teaching-focused conference. Conferences may be general (e.g. Lilly National Conferences) or discipline-specific (e.g. the Association for Theatre in Higher Education Annual Conference). Grant applications are accepted for attendance or presentation at a teaching conference.
How much funding do Pedagogy Travel Grants provide?
The Center for Teaching awards $500 grants each fall, spring, and summer.
