Faculty Senate Travel Funding

The Faculty Senate administers travel funding for Tenure-Stream faculty. These funds are available to full-timeTenure-Track/Tenured faculty only. Up to $500/faculty member, per 2-year cycle, may be awarded. All travel requests must be approved prior to travel. Funding will not be awarded retroactively. The Senate will notify applicants of whether or not they receive funding no later than five business days after the submission deadline. Faculty members still possessing funds in a start-up account that may be used towards travel may not receive senate travel funds until such startup funds are expended.

Departmental Admins/Travel Representatives will apply on behalf of the faculty member, much as in the same manner as applying for funding from the Office of the Vice President of Research. Requests should be emailed to facultysenatetravel@uta.edu no later than the listed deadline for upcoming semesters. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Requests should include the following information:

Deadlines and Timelines
Submission Deadlines (email must be received by this date)
5:00pm August 25 for travel commencing between September 1 and November 30.
5:00pm November 25 for travel commencing between December 1 and January 31.
5:00pm January 25 for travel commencing between February 1 and April 30.
5:00pm April 25, for travel commencing between May 1 and August 31.


Please note, funding requests may be submitted earlier than the stated deadline. Funds will be allocated at the discretion of the Faculty Senate based on review on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Receipts and other costs will be processed by the departmental travel admin in-line with current practices. Instructions for obtaining awarded funds are included in the award notification letter. If anything in this document appears to conflict with the Handbook of Operating Procedures or the travel procedures outlined by the Office of Business Affairs and Controller here, those documents take precedence. Questions may be addressed to the Chair of the Faculty Senate.
