Resources for Teachers

Summer 2012 Workshop

For teachers that cannot commute each day, we have reserved a block of hotel rooms at the Days Inn, Charlottesville. The grant will cover the full cost of the room for double occupancy. If you would prefer a single room, the grant will pay 1/2 of the cost and you are responsible for the other 1/2 (about $45 per night with taxes). The hotel will bill UVa for the lodging. You may have to present a credit card at check-in to cover incidental charges.

A modest meal stipend will also be available for those staying in hotels (the stipend will be about $15 per day).

After the workshop ends, you will file a travel reimbursement for your meals stipend. Technically, you will be a contractor of services from the University. Prior to the workshop you will need to be set up as a vendor. It's simple!

Follow the link below to the online form that the University provides. If you have any questions, please email Ed Murphy at

You need to do this before the workshop so that you can receive your travel reimbursement in a timely manner.
