Proposal Development Travel Fund

In an effort to encourage the pursuit of external funding at Slippery Rock University, the Office of Grants, Research and Sponsored Programs (GRASP) has funding available to support travel by SRU faculty and staff members developing grant proposals. The funds are available through GRASP's indirect cost distribution account. The number and maximum amount awarded for proposal development travel may be adjusted periodically based on need and the availability of indirect cost funds.

This program provides travel support for faculty and staff to:

  • meet with program officers at a funding agency
  • attend a proposal preparation workshop, a funding information conference, or a bidder's conference sponsored by a funding agency, or
  • attend a proposal preparation workshop, a funding information conference, or a bidder's conference that is part of a professional meeting

This program is intended to provide the opportunity for faculty and staff to communicate with program officers about funding activities in preparation for submitting a proposal for external funding.
