|Senate Scholarly Activities Committee lists deadline for travel applications|
The third deadline for submission of applications to the Senate Scholarly Activities Committee is Tuesday, Jan. 15. Travel applications will be considered at that time only for travel that will occur between Jan. 16 and May 1, 2008. No other applications will be considered.
The fourth deadline for submission of applications to the Senate Scholarly Activities Committee is Friday, Feb. 15. Research/creative activity and publication grant applications, as well as applications for new faculty scholar awards will be considered at that time. No travel applications will be considered.
Thursday, May 1, is the final deadline for submission of travel grant applications to the Senate Scholarly Activities Committee. This deadline is for travel occurring between May 2 and Sept. 15, 2008. No other applications will be considered.
The committee reminds applicants to carefully prepare their proposals and be specific and realistic in their budget requests. The proposal should be written with a multidisciplinary readership in mind. Avoid technical jargon and undefined abbreviations. Although the SSAC encourages submission of research/creative activity proposals and travel/publication requests, the committee takes into consideration the most recent SSAC awards granted to each applicant. Priority will be given to beginning faculty and first-time applicants. Requests for research/creative activity awards may not exceed $2,500. The committee receives requests for funding that far exceed funds available for awards; therefore, please prepare your application carefully.
Application forms are available at Research Development and Compliance (RD&C), 105 Twamley Hall, 777-4278, or on RD&C’s home page (UND’s home page under “Research”). A properly signed original and 11 copies of the application must be submitted to RD&C prior to or on the published deadline. Applications that are not prepared in accordance with the directions on the forms will not be considered by the committee. Please feel free to contact any of the current SSAC members for information or guidance when preparing your application. Their names, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses are available on RD&C’s home page or by calling RD&C at 777-4278.
