We are sorry to report that the Senate Office is no longer accepting applications for Research Travel for fiscal year 2002-03.
We have awarded all available funds for this fiscal year and are working very hard to mitigate any potential reduction of Academic Senate funds available to the UCSF faculty for Research Travel, however we will not know the amount of funding available for 2003-04 until the University's budget is finalized. The Senate Office will be happy to accept applications for travel taking place from July 1, 2003 - June 30, 2004, however funds cannot be awarded until the Senate Office budget is finalized. We will release a call for applications as soon as we confirm the availability of funds for 2003-04.

Applications are accepted throughout the fiscal year on a first come, first serve basis. Only one grant may be awarded to faculty who meet all the criteria each fiscal year. Grants are awarded based on actual airfare cost, up to an amount of $750.00 total. Applications for Travel Expenses cannot be accepted after the travel date.
