Atelsek, Frank J.; Gomberg, Irene L.
This survey was designed to examine how National Science Foundation's (NSF) International Travel Grant Program might be revised to better meet international travel needs of faculty in American universities. The survey results provide information about the extent of participation in international scientific meetings and the sources of travel support. The survey also provides insight into department heads' perceptions of the professional benefits derived from attending such meetings. (Author/JN)
