Faculty Travel Funds

~We are no longer accepting requests for Summer Quarter travel~

Please note: we are unsure at this time if funding after Summer Quarter will be available. Feel free to check with us in in the fall.

The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) offers Faculty Travel Funds to individuals with a teaching function at UW Bothell. Individuals who teach in some capacity may apply to receive, pending approval of the head of their unit, up to $800 per academic year to present at or attend a conference that contributes to their teaching and the rich pedagogical community at UW Bothell.

How to Apply

The traveler will fill out a Faculty Travel Funds application and a  Pre Travel Authorization Form. Include a printout, or link from the conference website that gives information about the conference.

Travel Rules:

  1. All travel must be pre-approved; there will not be retroactive funding.
  2. The TLC Travel Funds application must be approved by the traveler’s home school or other unit before submitting to the TLC.  The Travel Authorization form is to be submitted at the same time.
  3. Requests for TLC funding must be received at least 5 business days prior to date of travel.
  4. If the trip is not taken, or is cancelled prior to travel, any conference registration, travel arrangements (e.g. airfare, train fare) purchased by the TLC is to be reimbursed by the traveler within 30 days of the intended departure date.
  5. It is the responsibility of the traveler to be sure conference registration and travel arrangements have been made. The TLC Program Coordinator can help with these arrangements if needed.
  6. The traveler is responsible for submitting receipts from the conference to the TLC in order for the reimbursement to be processed. The School of Nursing and Health Studies will make all travel arrangements for its faculty members.
  7. Although the UW can reimburse for lodging through non-conventional systems such as AirBnB and VRBO, a requirement for lodging reimbursement is that it’s a commercial lodging facility, and meets the policy in that they are advertised to the general public. If you do use them, make sure your receipt comes from the services itself and not the lodging owner.
  8. The TLC does not reimburse for transportation through non-conventional systems such as Lyft.  You may use such transportation but cannot be reimbursed for it with TLC funds.

To request funding, please submit the Application and Request for Travel forms.
