When to Apply
While the committee may sometimes be able to approve materials quickly, please allow ample time before your travels to submit your application. For example, if you plan to travel in January, please submit your application in November, knowing that the Professional Development Committee will not be available over winter break. This is the same for applying for travel over the summer; it is recommended that you apply before April 15.
Remember the Professional Development Committee is made up of faculty, and we have the same schedule that you have, that includes classes, midterms, finals, and our own travels.
