Conference & Professional Travel Grants
Through its Endowments, VIPP is able to provide support for program participants who need to travel as part of their professional development. If you are currently a VIPP participant and are planning to attend a conference or professional activity directly related to professional development we invite you to apply for funding from the VIPP Endowments. This travel may be either domestic or international.
VIPP participants may apply more than once for Conference & Professional Travel Grants, but preference is given to those participants who are applying for the first time.
1. If you plan to travel and participate officially in a professional conference as presenter, discussant, or session chair, VIPP Endowments may provide a maximum $600 for international travel, and $300 for domestic travel.
2. If you plan to travel domestically to attend professional conferences, VIPP Endowments may provide a maximum amount of $200.
3. If you plan to travel domestically for purposes that are directly related to professional development, VIPP may provide a maximum of $200.
All applications must be submitted electronically to Dr. Kiwon Kang, Academic Advisor (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least three weeks before the professional travel takes place. VIPP's Academic Committee will review all applications and will provide funding based upon (a) available funds and (b) relevance of the travel to professional development. VIPP participants will receive funding after they return from the conference or professional travel.
