The College of Arts and Sciences is soliciting proposals to support expenses for faculty research during the summer of 2023. A small number of grants of up to $2,000 will defray expenses associated with research, including domestic and international travel expenses. Expenses may NOT include faculty stipends, student workers, or equipment. Receipts must be dated no later than August 20, 2023 and travel must be completed by August 20, 2023.

All permanent faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences may apply.

For any questions about these grants, please contact Associate Dean Richard Polt.

Xavier University offers travel insurance through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) to faculty and staff who travel internationally for Xavier business. It is $37.50 per month of coverage.

Please see this document for details: 2019 Policy_Brochure.pdf

You can self-enroll for the period of travel by following the instructions in this document: CISI Self Enrollment Checklist.pdf

The attached self-enrollment guide is for when faculty are traveling on their own (i.e. for research or a conference) and want to purchase coverage.  Xavier’s medical insurance policy treats international travel as out-of-network and so we suggest including this purchase in any international experience.
