Request information on travel support to college teachers

I am college teacher involved in research. I have been selected for Sophia Research Lecturing grants at Sophia University Japan. I will be paid for my expenses in Japan . However, travel to and from Japan will not be part for the support.
I will be completing 51 years of age.
Please let me know if there are any schemes that I can apply to support my travel expenses.

Dear Ma’am,

Please have a look at the AICTE Travel Grant here:

Thank you

Dear Navodita,
Thank you for your response. Regret to inform our institute and department is recognized by UGC and not AICTE. AICTE approves engineering courses.
Kindly let me know if there are schemes for UGC recognised colleges.

Yes Ma’am,

There exists a scheme for international travel grant for educators by UGC. Please find the details


The deadline for application is two months prior to the conference.

Hope this helps.

Thank you. I shall try. I thought the XII plan period is over and therefore not valid.Anyway I shall apply.
