PACE Project Conference Funding

In an effort to encourage dissemination of the PACE project results, the Language Center is pleased to make available to CLA language instructors and researchers travel funds to present research results or reports on assessment, instructional, or curricular initiatives related to or stemming from the PACE project at a relevant conference between April 2018 and December 2019.

The Language Center will provide up to $1000 to support travel, lodging, per diem, and conference registration. Funds will be awarded to an individual or group involved in a presentation for one conference per calendar year.

To qualify for funding, a conference proposal must clearly connect to the PACE project (proficiency results, curriculum revision, self-assessment, professional development). If PACE is not mentioned in the proposal itself, then the funding application must explain how PACE will be represented in the presentation.

Requirements for financial support

  • Complete an online application prior to submitting an abstract to conference planners
  • Agree to present the information in a public forum at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (Example: presentation, share fair, panel, etc.)
  • Agree to have the conference presentation and abstract listed in an online bibliography dedicated to LC-supported research and PACE project dissemination, as well as in reports to The Language Flagship.

P & A language instructors, graduate students, and faculty are all eligible to apply for this funding.

Please contact the PACE PI, Dan Soneson (, for further information.
