At the recommendation of the University Research Council, and the subsequent endorsement of the President’s Council last 13 August 2014, I hereby approve the Guidelines for Provision of Support to Research Presentation in Conferences effective immediately:

GUIDELINES FOR PROVISION OF SUPPORT
TO RESEARCH PRESENTATION IN CONFERENCES

I. Rationale

The Ateneo de Davao University (ADDU) extends research grants to its members in its efforts toward promoting robust research. In support of the knowledge generation and promotion that propel the initiative to engage in research, university researchers are likewise extended the opportunity to share their research results with fellow academics, practitioners of the field and other stakeholders in settings such as conferences and fora. This is done in recognition
of the enriching contribution that exchanges and/or discourses in such occasions bring to the intellectual pursuit as well as the search for truth that goes with research. Moreover, the possibility of meeting individuals whose research interest conforms to one’s own may afford opportunity for possible networking or partnership that could advance one’s research interest and that of the institution as well. Hence, the travel grant in support of paper presentation in
research-related conferences/fora/symposia.
