Mentor Grants provide funds to help faculty members accompany students to conferences or competitions where the faculty member is not usually a direct participant in the conference. Mentor Grants will reimburse the faculty member's travel, conference fees, and hotel expenses within certain limits.
Here's how to do it:
- If the conference is a professional development experience for the faculty member, instructors are encouraged to seek funding from Faculty Development prior to applying for the Mentor Grant.
- Complete the Mentor Grant application in which you will provide us with an estimate of the costs.
- Each application should be accompanied by a short narrative, not to exceed three paragraphs, describing the event.
