Undergraduate Advising Travel Grant

Virginia Tech makes intentional efforts to support the professional development of its advisors by providing funds to support the development of faculty, professional, and staff advisors who serve undergraduate students in an advising capacity. All undergraduate academic advisors are eligible to submit an application for this grant. Successful recipients will receive a $500 professional development grant to assist with expenses related to advising conferences and events. Grant recipients will be required to share a reflection paper highlighting the knowledge they gained and how this new knowledge will impact their delivery of advising services.

  • Annual Conference
  • Region 2 Conference
  • Administrators’ Institute
