AMATYC Traveling Workshop Grant Application


The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) provides a wide variety of professional development opportunities. In addition to the annual conference and thriving webinar series, AMATYC has been offering Traveling Workshops for many years.

While many institutions and affiliates have expressed interest in hosting a Traveling Workshop, the cost of hosting is a major issue for cash-strapped colleges and affiliates. In 2018 and 2019 AMATYC will award up to 4 Traveling Workshop Grants of up to $2000 each per year to fund Traveling Workshops. Ideally, we would like to award one of these grants in each of the 8 AMATYC regions.

Eligibility Requirements:
AMATYC Institutional Members and Affiliates may apply. Institutional Members will be given preference.

Grant Requirements:
Traveling Workshop presenter(s) must follow current AMATYC policies regarding reimbursement (airfare maximums, per diem amounts, receipt requirements).  In particular, please note that no funds will be disbursed before the workshop occurs and that AMATYC will reimburse the facilitator(s) and the affiliate or the institution.


Upon the conclusion of the Traveling Workshop and the receipt of reimbursement documentation, the funds will be disbursed under the following conditions:


  • $750 of the funds are for the honorarium to the Traveling Workshop Facilitator.  A W-9 is required to process the honorarium.  Please note that if there are multiple Traveling Workshop Facilitators, the $750 honorarium is split among the facilitators.
  • A maximum of $750 of the funds can be used to cover expenses for the Traveling Workshop Facilitator(s), such as airfare, lodging, and per diem amounts.
  • $500 of the funds can be used to cover food and supplies for participants in the Traveling Workshop.

The Traveling Workshop Director should submit an article about the Traveling Workshop, to be posted on the Traveling Workshop Page of the AMATYC website, and documentation for disbursement of funds (including AMATYC’s Standard Reimbursement Form) directly to the AMATYC Professional Development Coordinator within 30 days of the workshop. The article must be received before the institution or affiliate can be reimbursed for workshop food or supplies.

Applications must be submitted by January 15, 2018.


Application Requirements:

  • Letter (1-2 pages) to selection committee, including a sample budget of how the grant money will be utilized and answers to the following:
    Why do you want an AMATYC Traveling Workshop to come to your institution/affiliate?
    Have you considered other funding sources?
    Who will benefit from this Traveling Workshop?        
  • Goals & Assessment plan (1-2 pages), including answers to the following:
    What are your institution/affiliate goals for the Traveling Workshop?  How do they align with AMATYC’s mission/vision?
    What is your plan for assessing the success of the Traveling Workshop?
    How do you plan to communicate your assessment data to AMATYC (Professional Development Coordinator, Executive Board, etc.)?
  • Letter from the AMATYC Professional Development Coordinator, indicating your desired Traveling Workshop strand and some options for date(s) for your workshop.
  • A completed Traveling Workshop Grant Agreement Form.

Please fill out this form and click the Submit button. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. After each proposal is evaluated, a funding decision will be made, and the applicant will be notified of the decision.

Please contact Julie Gunkelman, the AMATYC Professional Development Coordinator, at, if you have any questions about this grant or the application process.
