Funding: Conference Travel Support

About

The LAII provides modest travel funds for full-time faculty members, including lecturers, who are presenting papers on Latin America or Iberia at a professional conference or meeting. The LAII can fund only one request per person per academic year. The maximum funding permitted is 50% of the least expensive airfare (domestic or international) or $350, whichever is less. International travel to Latin America must comply with the Travel America Act, which requires use of U.S. air carriers, and must be approved by the U.S. Department of Education at least 45 days prior to travel. Airline tickets should not be purchased until approval has been received.
