The Faculty Professional Development Grant is designed to help CSUB faculty achieve their professional goals. Normally, grants of up to $300.00 will be awarded to support professional activities related to teaching and learning, research and creative activities, and/or community or disciplinary service.
All Awards may be used as a sole source of funding or to supplement other resources (e.g., regular travel or research allowances or other funding).
Travel Awards may be used to fund (or help to fund) any reasonable travel request to support faculty development. Note for the 06-07 academic year documentation of panel participation or paper presentation is required..
for expenses normally covered by departments or
schools and requests for faculty stipends or
release time will not be funded. However,
budget requests may include:
- These awards are contingent upon
participation at a conference where the
faculty member will make a significant
contribution, (e.g., present a paper, serve
as discussant or chair of a panel).
- Alternatively, these awards may support
faculty research where travel is required
(e.g., historical archives, interviews or
surveys of a person or population).
- Expenses will be reimbursed after the
trip upon the submission of receipts.
As with all Faculty TLC Grants, future funding will
depend in part on the timely participation in Faculty
TLC activities ( discussion forums, workshops or
mentoring partnerships) and submission of a written
report of the faculty memberís activities.
All full-time lecturers and tenure-track faculty may
submit proposals for Faculty Professional
Development Grants. For a proposal to be considered, all applicants must have submitted their FINAL GRANT REPORTS for all previous awards.
