Conference Reimbursement Grants for Teaching and Learning

(previously, CATL Faculty Travel Reimbursement Grants)

CATL’s Conference Reimbursement Grants support faculty involvement with the scholarship of teaching and learning and connect faculty with highly innovative or research-based programs that support engaging, effective, inclusive, or scholarly approaches to teaching and learning. These Reimbursement grants supplement faculty professional development support from other parts of the University, making it possible for more faculty to participate in national and international initiatives on teaching and learning.

These grants fund attendance at conferences or workshops to develop one’s pedagogical skills or present on the scholarship of teaching and learning. They do not fund attendance or presentations of disciplinary research or to present on or learn about materials for course content.

CATL Conference Reimbursement Grants are awarded in amounts of up to $1000 for in-person conferences and up to $500 for virtual conferences. We anticipate that applications may exceed available funds; preference will be given to applicants presenting SoTL work or innovative or inclusive teaching and learning approaches. Recipients are limited to one reimbursement grant per fiscal year (June-May).


  • I am so appreciative that CATL supported me in going to this Faculty Development workshop. This workshop helped me to write a better exam which I gave the day after I got back. I even received a comment on my course evals that the final exam questions were better written! Talk about immediate feedback.

Please complete this form.
