This program offers partial support for academic conferences or symposia scheduled to take place on one of the campuses of SIUE. This support seeks to encourage SIUE as a possible site for regional, national or international conferences, symposia, and workshops that have primarily a scholarly (research) focus. It does not support events that are primarily focused on professional development or training.
Reviews of proposals will occur in February, May, September, and November. Thus, the submission deadline is the last working day of the previous month.
All full-time continuing members of the faculty may apply to the Conference and Workshop program. Staff members on continuing appointments who have served as an investigator or co-investigator on an externally sponsored grant are also eligible for this program.
Maximum funding of $6,000 per application will be provided to support a single conference. Anticipated total annual funding available for this program: $60,000. Requests for faculty salary or course buyout are not allowed; all other line items are considered but must be fully justified.
