Change to Conference & Presentation Fund guidelines
In recognition of the value that participation in professional conferences bring to faculty members, librarians, museum curators, and to the institution, RISD’s Office of Academic Affairs administers a $35,000 per annum fund that supplements travel, conference, and professional development funds in departments and divisions. Librarians, museum curators, and full‑time degree program faculty presenting at conferences and all part‑time degree program faculty who have taught for a minimum of two years and who are presenting at conferences are eligible to apply. The previous restriction disallowing an individual to receive an award in three consecutive years has been removed.
For more information on the fund and an application form, please visit the Academic Affairs website.
