Apply for the SEC Faculty Travel Program

The SEC Faculty Travel Program is intended to enhance faculty collaboration that stimulates scholarly initiatives between SEC universities. It gives full-time faculty members from one SEC university the opportunity to travel to another SEC campus to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, present lectures, conduct research and deliver performances.

At The University of Alabama, the SEC Faculty Travel Program is administered by the Office for Research & Economic Development (ORED), consistent with its mission.

Specifically, ORED emphasizes developing collaborative grant proposals and conducting collaborative research and scholarly activities as the primary objective.

Applications proposing research with a goal of external funding and/or scholarly publications will be given primary consideration.

Application materials are due June 30 at 4:45 pm. Please send applications to Angie Brown at angie@ua.edu. More details about the program and application can be found here.
