The PDC will review your application on the following:
· Appropriate Documentation (all forms submitted, in a timely
· Academically appropriate reason for traveling (travel related
to your academic position)
* All documents are to be submitted online; there is no longer a printed and signed component.
Please do not email any documents.
Please be aware that the PDC will review applications in the order in which they are received, and as efficiently as possible. The UNC System rules do not allow reimbursement for travel within 35 miles of campus.
When to Apply
It is important that applications for travel grants are submitted in a timely manner. For instance, if your travel is in January, the PDC recommends that you submit all required documentation in November. While the committee works to approve applications quickly, extenuating factors like vacation periods may affect the review and approval process. Also, if you plan to travel during the summer, you must apply before April 15.
Remember the PDC is made up of faculty with schedules that include classes, exam periods, and travels.
