6/10/19 - Applications sought for SEC Visiting Faculty Travel Grant Program

The Southeastern Conference Visiting Faculty Travel Grant Program is intended to enhance faculty collaboration that stimulates scholarly initiatives between SEC universities. It gives faculty from one SEC university the opportunity to travel to another SEC campus to exchange ideas; develop grant proposals; conduct research; consult with faculty and/or students; offer lectures or symposia; or engage in whatever activities are agreeable to the visitor and host unit.

Mississippi State University will select 10 faculty members to receive 2019-2020 travel grants of $1,000 each for transportation, room, board, etc., to use for travel to another SEC campus. Assistant, associate and full professors are eligible.

Travel dates for these visits are between Aug. 2, 2019, and June 16, 2020. The faculty member will contact a host unit that he or she wishes to visit to determine that unit’s receptivity and availability.
