2017-2018 SEC Travel Grant--Call for Nominations

Texas A&M is now accepting applications for 2017-2018 SEC Travel Grants. The Southeastern Conference (SEC) Visiting Faculty Travel Grant Program was established in 2012 to enhance collaboration between SEC universities. It gives faculty from SEC universities the opportunity to travel to another SEC campus to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, conduct research, present lectures or symposia, or carry out other similar activities.
This year the SEC will fund up to six awards to Texas A&M faculty of up to $1,700 each to defray travel costs, living expenses, etc. at another SEC member institution. All funds awarded during this cycle must be used by July 31, 2017. These funds are only available to faculty of Texas A&M University.
