Stipend Application

Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation (GEO-1065389), we are able to support several faculty from two-year colleges to attend and participate in the 2010 GSA Annual meeting. You may request funds equivalent to your travel costs, registration fee, and reasonable lodging expenses. Awardees will be expected to register for and attend the Funding Opportunities for Two-year College Faculty: Possibilities, Challenges, and Successes workshop/discussion Sunday evening in its entirety (5:30-7:00 pm).

We have limited funds and recipients will be selected based on their degree of participation (e.g. presenting authors will have priority over non-presenting authors) and financial need. 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 programs. To be supported by this funding, a participant must be either a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident, or in the employ of a U.S. institution. We hope that you will understand that this funding is intended to prevent our colleagues from having to pay to attend GSA out of their own pockets, and hope that you will limit your request to expenses you have that would not be otherwise reimbursed.

Applications must be received by October 21. Awardees will not be reimbursed per se, but receive a stipend for attendance and participation in the above sessions; 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:
