International Travel Fund Program

The President and the Office of the Provost have graciously approved supplemental funding to assist TTU faculty with the cost of travelling abroad for making presentations, addresses at conferences, exhibitions, and concerts that are taking place outside of the United States. This funding is administered by the Office of International Affairs (OIA) and is intended to supplement departmental, college and/or other funds available to faculty for this purpose. Funding awards are contingent upon written consent of the department chair, center director, and the Dean of the College.
