Region VII supports three (3) travel awards to offset the costs of attendance at the NCURA Annual and Regional Meeting.
Stay Tuned for Nominations and applications for 2020 Travel Awards.
See below for details.
1. Applicants must be research administrators from within the Region VII geographic area (AZ • CO• ID • MT • NM • UT• WY). Applicants need not be members of NCURA in order to apply.
2. Applicants must not have previously attended an NCURA-sponsored meeting or conference. Participation in NCURA training courses (e.g. Fundamentals of Sponsored Projects Administration Workshop) or NCURA web seminars does not preclude eligibility.
3. Applications and support letters must demonstrate both the potential benefit of the award and the individual/institutional need for travel assistance.
4. The application and/or the support letter(s) must demonstrate that the applicant has secured their manager or supervisor's approval to attend the meeting.
5. Should the cost of attendance exceed the amount of the award, the application and/or the support letter(s) must confirm that the awardee or the awardee’s home institution will cover the balance.
Selection of the awardees will be determined by the Region VII Award Committee, based on perceived need and potential benefit to the applicant and the applicant’s institution. Selection criteria used by the Committee include:
* Benefit of attendance
* Candidate's contribution to his/her organization, and ability to add value to organization if able to attend the meeting
* Relevant experience of the candidate
* Strength and applicability of support letter(s).
* Reasons why the applicant's institution could not support the applicant's attendance at the meeting in the absence of a travel award
