International Travel Stipends for Faculty

Posted September 08, 2017

Dear Colleagues:

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 programsinternational 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 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:

  1. 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 year.
  2. The applications will be voted on by the IPAC as they are received but should be submitted at least 2 months prior to travel if possible.
  3. 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 available.


Please note:

  1. 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.
  2. 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, etc..


If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.  Thank you.


Best Regards,
