International Travel Stipends for Faculty
Posted September 08, 2017
In an effort to increase Texas A&M's CVMBS' faculty and
students presence internationally, money is made available by the
International Program Advisory Committee (IPAC) to be used to
supplement travel for faculty who desire to travel outside the U.S.
in order to develop new international program
opportunities in the areas of new study abroad
programs, international research
collaboration, and/or international
development. If you plan to travel abroad in order
to develop a new international teaching or
research opportunity for the CVM and would like to apply
for travel funds, please go to http://vetmed.tamu.edu/international-programs/travel-awards
and download the faculty international travel application.
The applications will be reviewed by the International Program
Advisory Committee and awards will be designated.
Timeline for applications:
- This year the IPAC will start reviewing application
after September 29, 2017. If you plan to travel this fiscal
year, please submit your application as soon as possible. The
applications are reviewed on a first come, first serve basis.
There will be at least 4 stipends awarded in this fiscal
- The applications will be voted on by the IPAC as they are
received but should be submitted at least 2 months prior to travel
- The IPAC meets on a quarterly basis in September, December,
March, and June. Applications will be reviewed at the next
IPAC after which it is received as long as there is money
- Travel should be completed in the fiscal year in which it is
received. If you do not travel in that fiscal year, you will
have to re-apply in the next fiscal year.
- The money is a reimbursement so receipts must be kept and you
will only be reimbursed for trip expenses for which you have
receipts up to the amount awarded.
Upon completion of your trip, you will need to provide the IPAC
with a written summary of your trip activities and what outcomes
where achieved on the trip before you can be reimbursed. A
form is provided for this. In order for the CVM to continue
to receive this money, outcomes need to be documented.
Examples of outcomes can be the development of a new study abroad
course, new research collaboration with an international partner,
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
