Faculty Development Grants (formerly the travel and professional grants) are intended to support faculty in their growth as instructors and professionals in their fields. Faculty Development Grants will replace both the travel and professional development grants to streamline the process and provide greater opportunity to faculty. Any faculty member (except visiting and distinguished professors) may apply for the FDG in any of the three rounds of proposals. The funds may be used to support any of the following activities:

  • Travel to a conference, training or workshop (airfare, lodging, rental car, mileage, public transportation)
  • Registration fee for a conference, training or workshop
  • Subscription or access costs for professional work
  • Production or materials costs for professional work
  • Payment for services connected to your professional work, if it can be invoiced

Faculty Development Grants may not be used to reimburse faculty for their own time or work.  The maximum award amount is $2000. Faculty may apply at each round, but may only be awarded one grant per year. Selected proposals will be funded at their full proposed amount, up to $2000. FDG grants are not retroactive and cannot cover expenses already spent. However, faculty may apply during any round for expenses planned up to 12 months after the awards are made. Faculty must submit reimbursement documentation within two weeks post travel (for travel-related expenses) or two weeks of expenditure (for all other expenses). Upon notification of award, awardees must meet in person with the Manager of Academic Affairs to receive clearance to use their funds.
