Vice Chancellor for Research - Faculty Travel Awards
The Vice Chancellor for Research will consider faculty requests for travel awards to help defray the costs of travel to external funding agencies.
To enhance the competitiveness of research proposals by facilitating interaction with prospective sponsors.
UNL faculty members (tenure line or research professors) are eligible for travel funds.
The faculty member's department chair/center director and dean must co-sign and agree to cover a portion of the travel cost.
Faculty members who receive travel awards from the VCR must submit a one-page report on their visit, within one month of their return.
Faculty members who receive travel awards must notify the VCR when they submit a proposal for external funding that resulted from the travel.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR TRAVEL REIMBURSEMENT FROM THE VICE CHANCELLOR FOR RESEARCH:After faculty complete their travel they should:
- Complete the standard Employee Expense Voucher (EEV) and charge the portion of their travel to be reimbursed by the Vice Chancellor for Research to a departmental RIF (Research Incentive Fund; also known as F&A, return of indirect, or return of overhead) cost center ending in a -4XXX suffix.
- Send the original EEV plus supporting documentation to Accounting as normal so that the faculty member can be reimbursed personally.
- Submit a copy of the EEV (we do not need the supporting documentation) to 303 Admin, CC 0433. Please include a printout from SAP of any direct charges (e.g., for airfare) and a copy of the signed Faculty Travel Award document or a brief note requesting reimbursement for travel that has been previously approved under the Faculty Travel Awards Program.
Note: Due to new reporting requirements, we are only able to make budget transfers for our portion of travel expenses to RIF cost centers. Please charge travel expenses accordingly. If you have any questions about the budget transfer process, please call Becky Zavala at 472-0735
