An internationally engaged faculty is vital to the Dickey Center mission of promoting international understanding at Dartmouth. We want to ensure that faculty working on international research has access to the materials abroad that will allow them to do their best work. Sharing this work with colleagues around the world is an important part of our mission as well.
Travel for Research
Grants are made quarterly to faculty whose research requires them to travel abroad to access resources not available to them at Dartmouth. These grants are generally made for research trips of short duration, and are assessed on the basis of the quality of the proposal, the likelihood it will lead to publication, and how critical the need is to conduct research abroad. Requests for support in excess of $5000 will be shared with our faculty advisory committee. All applications are due by the Monday of the fifth week of each term, for projects to be undertaken in the subsequent or following term.
The Dickey Center offers supplemental travel grants to faculty presenting papers at international conferences. These funds are intended to supplement faculty development funds from the Dean of the Faculty or home department in order to offset the higher costs of international travel. Grants are currently available up to $600. Application must be made by the fifth Monday of the term preceding the conference dates.
