Funding Opportunities

Limited funding for your professional travel, research, teaching, and creative initiatives
is available through the Center.  We invite you to apply! 

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/international conference?  If
you answered yes, you may be eligible to apply for a Travel Grant.

Virtual Conferences:  Registration fees for professional virtual conferences may also be covered provided
you are presenting or performing virtually.  P-Cards must be used to pay registration fees to virtual conferences.  See your departmental AA if you do not have a P-Card.

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.

A special call for the Endowment goes out to faculty each Spring semester.
