SEC Faculty Travel Grant Program

The SEC Faculty Travel Grant Program is intended to enhance faculty collaboration that stimulates scholarly initiatives between universities of the Southeastern Conference. Supported directly from the Provosts at each SEC institution, the program gives faculty from one SEC university the opportunity to travel to another SEC campus to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, and conduct research. Applications are typically accepted in the Spring for an internal peer-review, with award notifications made in late May for travel in the following academic year (August - July).


Applications should be submitted through the LSU Internal Grants & Competition Portal.
