Important changes to the Faculty Research Travel Funding program

The Research Travel Funding program provided support to over 100 faculty, postdoctoral fellows and students to present the results of their research at scholarly conferences in 2017-2018.

Given the strong demand for travel funding and the increasing costs of travel, there will be some important changes to the Faculty Research Travel Funding program for 2018-19:

  1. The funding for travel within Canada has been raised to $750
  2. The funding for travel to all international locations, including the United States, has been raised to $1500

Eligible applicants for this program are:

  • Tenured, Tenure Track, Term, and Sessional UPEI Faculty
  • Librarians

Applicants must be employed by UPEI in an eligible position at the time of application and during the period of travel.

The increase in funding amounts is effective as of May 1, 2018. Applicants who applied at the previous rates but were approved for travel that occurs after May 1, 2018, will be permitted to claim the higher amount.

Funding rates for postdoctoral fellows and students will remain unchanged.
