Faculty and staff are eligible to apply for a Presentation RDS via two different mechanisms:
Pre-Approval –apply for a Presentation RDS before presenting at a conference. This option allows for an RDS to be conferred prior to the conference, thus assuring the applicant that funds have been secured prior to presenting at a conference.
Post-Conference – apply for a Presentation RDS after the presentation has been delivered at a conference.
Presentation RDS are a set award of $1500. Funds are awarded after the presentation has been delivered, regardless of whether you apply via the Pre-Approval or Post-Conference processes described below.
As of May 2, 2022, the RDS program is “back to normal!”
Applications for both indexed and non-indexed publications as well as conferences (pre-approval and post-conference) are now eligible for consideration. If awarded, RDS funds will be disbursed per the usual notification process.
