Region VI provides awards for travel support to its membership in order to enhance the professional development of the research administration community within Region VI, and to encourage participation by newer members. The Region VI leadership administers a call for applications for travel awards for each year's regional meeting and the national meetings and conferences (Annual Meeting, FRA, PRA).
The following criteria is used in the review of application and consideration of members for an award. To be considered for this award, nominees must:
Be research administrators from within the Region VI geographic area (Alaska, California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, Northern Marianas Islands, Oregon, Samoa, and Washington);
Have not previously attended an NCURA-sponsored meeting or conference;
Demonstrate both the potential benefit of the award and the individual/institutional need for travel assistance; and
Demonstrate that they have secured their supervisor's approval to attend the meeting.
Applications must be completed and submitted within the submission period of the Call for Applications for the respective meeting.
See the ANNOUNCEMENTS page for link to the Call for Applications. Calls for Applications are posted on the website and announced via e-mail and social media.
