The Office of Faculty Development provides resources to enhance professional development through funding of proposals in each of three categories:
The maximum amount that may be requested for any single award is $10,000 (*$5,000 for mini-sabbaticals) and funding of two awards/category is anticipated. Funds will be awarded for one year. Unexpended award balances may be carried forward, following review and approval.
Allowable budget lines are for equipment, travel/training expenses (including participation in short training courses or longer term "mini-sabbaticals"*), expenses associated with consultants/speakers/visiting scholars, expenses associated with hosting a conference or symposium, supplies and materials, or contractual service necessary to successfully address collaborative project objectives.
For the following items will be considered, in any combination, up to the limit of $10,000 for one year.
Applicants should complete all requested information on the Faculty Scholarship Exchange Award Proposal cover page, as described in the Proposal Instructions. One original plus five copies of all required documents must be received at the Office for Faculty Development by the required deadline. The cover page must be signed by the Department Chair of the Principal Investigator (PI) and by each applicant prior to submission.
