Application deadline August 16, 2013
Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, the SAGE 2YC program is able to partially support faculty from two-year colleges to attend and participate in the short course #508 - Helping Students Succeed in Geoscience Courses at Two-Year Colleges and the 2013 GSA annual meeting including travel, lodging, and registration. You may request funds up to your anticipated travel costs, registration fee, and reasonable lodging expenses.
We have limited funds and recipients will be selected based, among other factors, on their degree of participation in the GSA meeting. Registration and participation in the short course #508 Helping Students Succeed in Geoscience Courses at Two-Year Colleges is required. There are also many relevant technical sessions that might be appropriate for two-year faculty contributions. Because our funds are limited, we encourage you to first pursue possible sources of funding on your campus, such as your department chair, dean, center for teaching and learning, or other faculty development program, and it is expected that all recipients will request funding from the Subaru 2YC stipend program. To be supported by this funding, you must be a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident, or in the employ of a U.S. institution. We hope that you understand that this funding is intended to prevent our colleagues from having to pay to attend GSA out of their own pockets, and that you limit your request to expenses not reimbursed by other funds available to support your participation.
Applications must be received by August 16. Awardees will not be reimbursed per se, but will receive a stipend for attendance and participation in the short course and events listed; as such, awards will be issued after the meeting. While awardees are not asked to submit travel receipts, they must provide tax identification information to Highline Community College before the award can be issued. Awardees will be contacted with complete instructions. If you have questions regarding the stipend awards, please contact Eric Baer via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awards will be limited to the cost of reasonable housing, actual registration cost for the short course and (no field trips), and airfare or other travel expenses via the lowest cost-option.
Adjunct faculty are particularly encouraged to apply!
