The objective of the Project Coordinator Travel Support Program is to enable university personnel functioning in a project coordinator-type role to attend a conference or training workshop related to the management of contracts and grants. This support is provided to offer program personnel an opportunity to advance skills required for the effective management of externally funded programs.
One Project Coordinator Travel Support Grant will be awarded for each of two annual competitions (see guidelines for deadline details). Applicants must be employed in a position involved in the coordination and management of at least one currently active sponsored program, and the conference or workshop must be related to the employee’s grants management responsibilities. High priority will be given to those in academic departments with insufficient travel funds.
