Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty (TGEF)
The TGEF program, which consists of two components (I and II), was established to assist emerging faculty (tenure track but non-tenured) in the science and engineering disciplines by providing travel funds needed to further their research and build strong collaborations.
The eligible disciplines include: biological sciences (all); mathematical & computer sciences; earth & environmental sciences (geology, oceanography, environmental); engineering (all); physical sciences (astronomy, chemistry, physics); and the social & behavioral sciences.
TGEF I provides up to $1,200 to untenured tenure-track faculty seeking to visit a federal funding agency program officer to discuss their research proposals. The award amount can be increased to $2,400 if the applicant is accompanied by an established tenured professor.
TGEF II provides up to $1,200 to untenured tenure-track faculty who have been invited to present plenary or major invited talks at national or international meetings.
Open deadline: June 30, 2015
Applicants must submit proposals to LA EPSCoR at the Board of Regents at least 30 days prior to the requested start date of travel.
