Travel Grants

Travel grants of up to $1000 are designed to support and encourage attendance at off-campus workshops or seminars on pedagogy (or conferences directly related to pedagogy) and devoted to the applicant's professional development as a teacher.

Travel Grants for Attending Teaching Conferences

These events may be discipline-specific or higher education pedagogy-focused. The purpose of participation must be directly related to improving instruction in Dartmouth courses and programs.

Eligibility

Any Dartmouth faculty, graduate student and professional staff who are directly involved with student instruction.

Selection Criteria

Funds will be awarded to applicants who make a clear case for how attendance will contribute to their pedagogy, course design, or understanding of student learning.
