Stipend Application

Application deadline for the stipend is Friday, June 14, 2019

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 #524 - Inclusive and Effective College Science Classrooms: Engaging Students, Designing Lessons, and Integrating Diversity into Curriculum and/or to give a presentation (you must be the presenting author) in topical session #201 - Celebrating the Role of Heather Macdonald in Geoscience Education and the 2019 GSA annual meeting including travel, registration, and lodging. You may request funds for your anticipated travel costs, the meeting and workshop registration fees, and/or abstract submission fee, and reasonable lodging expenses up to a maximum of $1500.

Registration and participation in the short course #524 -Inclusive and Effective College Science Classrooms: Engaging Students, Designing Lessons, and Integrating Diversity into Curriculum or giving a presentation in topical session #201 - Celebrating the Role of Heather Macdonald in Geoscience Education is required. As a result, if you are participating in the short course, you must be in Phoenix, AZ on Saturday, Sept 21 by 8am. You must also attend at least one full day of the GSA meeting. 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. To be supported by this funding, you must be a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident, or employed by a U.S. institution. This funding is intended to limit the amount you may have to pay out of your own pocket to attend GSA. Please limit your request to expenses not reimbursed by other funds available to support your participation.

Applications must be submitted by June 14. Support from SAGE 2YC will be in the form of a stipend and will be issued after the meeting. Awardees will be contacted with complete instructions within one week after the application deadline. If you have questions regarding the stipend awards, please contact Norlene Emerson via email: emersonn@uwplatt.edu

Awards will be limited to the cost of reasonable airfare, actual registration cost for the short course and meeting (no field trips), housing, and/or other travel expenses via the lowest cost-option.

Adjunct faculty are particularly encouraged to apply!
