Awards and Funding Limits

  • FDFC will provide funds per faculty member up to the annual allocation limit. The current annual funding limit is $3,000.
  • The first priority for the FDFC is to reimburse travel to international, national, state, and regional meetings, conferences, or shows where the faculty will present original scholarly work. Because of the limited amount of funding available, second and third priority requests will be held until late in the academic year to ensure funding for higher priority activities.
  • Often scholarship activities are collaborative efforts between faculty or between faculty and students. Because of limited funds, FDFC will restrict awards to the cost of one presenter’s travel costs when “joint” presentations are made. Faculty are encouraged to share the travel award.
