The Berkeley Language Center provides limited funding for foreign language lecturers to attend and present a paper at either domestic or international professional conferences. Travel Grant is up to $750.00 for one presenter and $500 for co-presenters. We realize this will not cover all travel expenses; lecturers are encouraged to seek supplemental funding support. Additionally, lecturers are limited to one grant per year.
Include a copy of the program, an abstract, and/or a letter of invitation with your application form (download below). Applications must be submitted prior to travel. Applications for travel taking place from August through mid January should be submitted no later the first Friday in October, and travel from mid January through July should be submitted no later than the first Friday in April
University Regulations state that the Berkeley Travel Office will only reimburse travelers who provide original receipts in their own name. There are no exceptions to this rule. Travel expense reimbursements should be processed within two weeks after conference travel. You are required to sign a UC Travel Voucher Form to complete the paperwork. Please do not mail receipts to the BLC Office.
