On or before September 30, submit your professional travel grant proposal to the Provost’s Office
using the Faculty Travel Grant Proposal form. Since you may not know the full details about the
meeting at this time, tentative plans and expenses are acceptable. However, please be as detailed as
possible regarding the nature of the professional organization and/or the meeting, and why this is
an appropriate and important development opportunity for you. Within ten days of your return, a
travel expense form must be completed and submitted to the Provost’s Office.
It is in everyone’s best interest to limit the total cost of each trip as much as possible. The money
you save may make additional travel possible for you or a colleague.
It is recommended, but not required, that you use a College credit card for booking reservations,
etc. Travel advances will no longer be issued.
If it is necessary to rent a car, car rental insurance is not needed.
The use of a personal automobile for travel is reimbursed at the IRS rate that is in effect at the start
of the fiscal year.
It is a College-wide policy that the maximum per diem allowance for meals is $50 and that alcohol
expenses are not reimbursable.
