The application for a TIP Workshop is a three-part process.
Part I is submitting information about yourself and your department. Submitting this electronic application form will complete Part I and enable us to start your file.
Part II is securing a letter of support from your department chair (or university administrator) e-mailed to email@example.com
(see details below).
Part III is sending a check via regular mail for the participation fee of $100.00 (see details below). This participation fee will be refunded if the application is not accepted.
A limited amount of funds are available from the NSF grant for travel subsidies for faculty members employed by a DOE minority institution. Please note that this subsidy will be paid to eligible participants after submission of dated receipts for normal travel expenses such as airfare and ground transportation.
Have your department chair (or university administrator) write and e-mail a letter of support for your participation in this workshop with the chair or administrator's title, address, and other contact information given in the e-mail. Have him or her state the likely benefits to you, your students and your department or university. The e-mail letter should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the subject line "TIP: First Name Last Name" of workshop applicant.
Please send a check (made payable to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln) to: Professor William Walstad, Department of Economics, 339 College of Business Administration, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE 68588-0402. This check is a participation fee and will be refunded if the application is not accepted.
We treat applications as incomplete until we receive the check. We will refund the fee if we do not accept you or if you withdraw before March 1, 2009. If you withdraw after March 1, you forfeit the fee.
An evaluation of TIP will be conducted using the information that you supply in this application, and in follow-up surveys.
