Travel Enrichment Fund

In the spring of 2004, Mr. Philip Donovan initiated The Donovan Travel Enrichment Fund for student and faculty travel. The fund helps support faculty and students who are traveling to research centers, and to conferences. With additional financial support from numerous sponsors, this award has been renamed the College of Arts and Sciences Travel Enrichment Fund.

Travel Enrichment funds have been designated for the use of attending a conference as a presenter or to conduct research. Applications for anything other than these two purposes will not be accepted. Participation in internships, study abroad programs, summer schools, seminars and workshops are not eligible for funding. Submission of application does not guarantee an award.

A list of past recipients can be found on the Accolades website.
