QEP Engagement – Non-Conference Travel Requests
In a few instances, faculty or staff may request funds to support student travel for reasons other than presenting at a professional conference.  While these funds are limited, the QEP Steering Committee will review requests that are submitted using the following:
  1. Indicate student’s contact information (include name, major, gpa, email address) and whether the student is an undergraduate or graduate student;
  2. State explicitly the connections between this experience and the QEP learning outcomes (available at qep.wcu.edu) and other program learning outcomes to be addressed and assessed as part of this travel experience;
  3. Indicate the specifics of the experience, e.g., what the selected student will be doing while at the event/venue;
  4. Indicate a budget outline of anticipated expenses;
  5. Include a statement about follow-up activities and dissemination resulting from this experience;
  6. Provide the eligibility or selection process/qualifications student needs to meet, if there are any;
  7. Indicate other sources of funding, e.g., department, college, private funds, etc.

Applications are accepted throughout the academic year. Please send electronically or paper copy to:
Dr. Carol Burton, QEP Steering Committee
Assistant Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Studies
