Funding Opportunities

We know that as a faculty member funding for your professional travel, research, teaching, and creative initiatives is essential.  So, we invite you to learn more about the funding opportunities we provide.



Travel Grants

Are you presenting or performing on behalf of Southeastern at a professional conference or meeting?  Are you chairing a session at a national conference?  If you answered yes, you may be eligible to apply for a Travel Grant.

DEADLINE:  30 Days Prior to Travel (no exceptions)


Enhancement Grants

Do you have an idea that would enhance your teaching, research endeavors or performance activities?  Each Fall semester the Center awards up to $700.00 to assist you with these initiatives.

DEADLINE:  October 1


Orr Research Endowment

Through the generosity of the Orr family, this grant is designed to offset certain costs associated with research, scholarly or creative activities of tenured faculty.  It is awarded to one faculty member each year, and the amount of the award varies.

(The 2019-20 Endowment has been awarded.  A special call for the 2020-21 Endowment will be posted later in the Spring 2020 semester.)
