GHR Foundation Academic Excellence Grant Conference Award Applications are accepted on a rolling basis after a faculty/staff member has been accepted to present at a conference. Full and part-time faculty, professional faculty, faculty assistants and staff are eligible to apply. Adjunct faculty are not eligible for conference awards.
To apply for these funds, faculty must complete the form below which automatically forwards your application to the review committee. SPREE will then work with the committee to review requests. Awardees will be notified within 2-4 weeks if they are approved for funding. Funds are to be used June 1-May 31 of the year they are awarded.
Faculty and staff may apply for up to $2,000 for international and $1,400 for domestic conference funding, to be used in conjunction with APDC Travel Awards, to support presenting abroad as a representative of St. Catherine University. Limited funds are available and selection priority will be given to presentations (papers, posters, invited presentations) that best align with grant priorities as defined in the AEG Conceptual Framework.
Travel Award Application Instructions

What if my conference is hosted by an international association in the US? You would be able to apply for the $1,400 travel award.
If awarded, can I use my funding to support my student research assistant presenting with me? No. There is a separate funding mechanism for student travel awards for presentations.
My co-presenter would like to apply together, is that allowed? No, each faculty/staff member should submit their own application. Priority approval will be given to the primary author.
