OSPR administers funds for faculty members to attend academic conferences. About 60 trips are sponsored each year.
Full-time faculty may request up to $1,500 annually for conferences at which they present. If they are attending only, they may request up to $1,000. Adjunct faculty may request up to $1,250 for conferences at which they are presenting. If less than the maximum is requested for one conference, the remainder may be used for an additional conference if funds are available.
Announcements will be made to faculty members when applications for the academic year 2017-2018 will be accepted.
Student Research Opportunities
Each fall, our office conducts several seminars to acquaint students with upcoming summer research internship opportunities available across the country. For many students who participate, this activity can serve as their capstone experience as well.*
