The FLI travel/conference funding criteria for 2022-2023 fiscal year will include a $4,200 limit for each of five segments. The $4,200 limit will be shared equitably by all approved applications. The maximum allotment per fiscal year for full time faculty is $850, and for adjuncts is $500.
Travel/conference segments will be established as follows:
|Segment 1: July/August/September 2022||Deadline: Monday, June 13, 2022|

How to Apply for Funds
- Complete a
Travel Authorization form. Also include the
Request for Staff Development Funding form. Attach copies of any supporting documents (such as program descriptions or registration forms). Keep copies of everything for your file.
- Sign forms and get the necessary signature from your dean or supervisor.
- Forward all documents to Caroline Tippins of the Staff Development Committee. The travel expenditure must first be approved by the Faculty Learning Institute. The vice president and president will sign the forms
after committee approval.
Do not make any nonrefundable reservations or buy tickets until your request has been approved, unless you are prepared to pay for expenses yourself.
- After you receive your authorization, make your reservations and go. Have a great time, and
keep your receipts!
- To receive your reimbursement, you must submit an expense voucher along with receipts to
accounts payable/fiscal services within two weeks after you return. You will not be reimbursed if you do not submit an expense report, and your allocated funds will be returned to the faculty development budget for someone else to use.
