Travel and Contingency Grants

Travel and Contingency Grants

ARI Travel Grants (ongoing/no deadline)
When available, travel funds are intended to support travel to venues at which faculty have been invited to present research or other creative activity. Applicants for off-cycle travel grants must have already sought funding from COR Scholarly Meeting Travel (SMT) funds. The SMT application allows all applicants to request a copy of their responses. A duplicate of the SMT copy of responses must be attached to all ARI off-cycle travel funding requests. No ARI funds will be granted for travel without proof of an SMT application.

ARI Contingency Grants (ongoing/no deadline)
When available, contingency funds are intended to support unforeseen research opportunities that arise outside the regular ARI funding cycles. Off-cycle proposals should include an explanation of the unforeseen contingency or travel circumstance and a budget. In general, contingency funds will NOT be granted for projects previously funded. If applying for funds to supplement an existing ARI-funded project, the narrative must explain why additional support is required, and why such a need could not have been foreseen at the time of the original application to ARI. Please supply ARI with documentation concerning your contingency fund request.

General Restrictions

  • You must apply for off-cycle funds prior to making expenditures or undertaking the travel for which you will be reimbursed. These funds may not be applied retroactively.
  • Due to limited available funds, no more than $1000 in contingency funds will be awarded to a person in one year.
  • No one person can receive more than $2K in combined travel and contingency funding in any academic year.
  • Application for off-cycle funding is on-going. Decisions will be made by the Executive Committee on a case-by-case, first come, first served basis until the off-cycle monies are expended.
