The Department of History has created an application for History Faculty and History Graduate Students who wish to request funding from the department to support their participation in research and conference travels.  Please find below a link to the application form (in Word and in PDF format). Here are some important things to know before submitting your application.

Please remember that if you are traveling, you MUST submit a completed travel authorization form PRIOR to your departure.  Failure to submit a travel authorization in a timely manner may not affect your application process at the Departmental level, but FSO (The Financial Services Office) may refuse approval of reimbursement for not following UA Policy.  Departmental approval for funding does not guarantee funding,  this is dependent on timely submission of documents and providing the documents needed for reimbursement.  Original receipts are required for reimbursement.  For information about per diem rates allowed, pre-travel policies and reimbursement policies, please visit as well as  Maximum allowable hotel expenses and per diem rates depend on city and dates of visit; by UA FSO policy we cannot award per diem costs that exceed the allowances indexed on their website. Priority will be given to those presenting at conferences.
