Weinberg Research Recovery Grants (WR2)

Recognizing that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the research of many faculty members, Weinberg College is reimagining the W Awards to focus on providing support for research recovery.  See details here.

Research funds

Travel funds

The College has a limited amount of supplemental travel/professional development funds that are allocated for our tenure line and teaching track faculty members.   

Formal review will occur twice a year -   November 1 and March 1 -  so that all applications received to that point can be competitively reviewed for merits and against available resources.  Approvals will be formally provided and funding addressed.  (Note:  We realize some requests may be time sensitive and we will do our best to accommodate off-cycle requests.) 

Please fill out the appropriate webform below to submit your request.  Note, all applications must have departmental/program support.

Use Northwestern Travel Policies and Procedures and Northwestern University Travel Services when planning travel.
