Faculty are encouraged to review new guidelines and restrictions pertaining to requesting travel funding, academic project grants, and faculty/student academic challenge funding. Significant changes that faculty need to be made aware of include new application deadlines and the heightened priority of requests that align with IC 20/20 initiatives as they relate to the three funding sources (Faculty Travel, Academic Project Grants, and Academic Challenge).
For example, all faculty travel funding requests must be received by the Provost Office at least sixty (60) days prior to date of travel, and a greater priority will be given to any request that can demonstrate a direct or indirect alignment with the IC 20/20 plan. Please review the new guidelines and restrictions by visiting the Office of the Provost at www.ithaca.edu/provost. Questions may be directed to Margie Arnold at email@example.com. Changes will become effective October 1, 2012.
