Development and Travel Grants

The Office of Academic Affairs offers two grant opportunities for Faculty: Faculty Development Grants and Research Travel Grants. Please read Faculty Handbook, Chap IV7u彩票网址 for specifics regarding these two grant funds. A basic overview is provided below. These grants are awarded in two "rounds". Please see the application deadlines and other dates below.

Faculty Development Funds

The Faculty Development Fund exists to aid the growth and development of individual faculty members at this institution. Project proposals may involve creative activity, research, writing, training and study, and program development. Projects are ranked and funded on the basis of their merit.

Historically, the Awards Committee has given low scores to applicants for equipment or supplies not directly related to the specific development project. When a project proposal is contingent on the candidate's acceptance into an institute or seminar, a letter of support from the sponsoring organization is required before funds will be released. The Faculty Development Fund is not designed to recognize or compensate teaching activities.
