Student and Faculty Excellence (SAFE) Fund

Student And Faculty Excellence Fund

The College of Arts and Sciences Student and Faculty Excellence (SAFE) Fund provides resources that can be used to transform the undergraduate and graduate experience and support faculty teaching, research, and engagement. Typical past awards range from $500 up to $3,000.

SAFE funds support:

  • Undergraduate and graduate student travel to present at professional conferences
  • Publication support for faculty book contracts
  • Travel and honoraria for outside speakers for lectures, class discussions, and workshops
  • Purchasing research equipment to be used by our students and faculty
  • Travel to archives and professional meetings

Applications for the spring semester are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on the last Monday of February. Completed applications may be delivered to the Deans Office, 201 IG Greer or sent by email to Lauren Maltba, maltbaln@appstate.edu.
