The Office of the Provost will be offering the Staff Professional Development Program again this year with $100,000 allocated for grants to staff members within the Academic Affairs Division. Last year’s program successfully awarded funding to more than 70 individuals or groups who used it for a variety of activities such as attendance at conferences, coordinating on-campus training workshops and subscriptions to online professional development tools.
The below call for proposals and the FAQ includes instructions on how to apply for a grant, including evaluation criteria. Proposals are due Friday, Nov. 4, at noon and awards will be announced by Nov. 23. Academic Affairs staff members are eligible to submit proposals for grants, as individuals or as part of groups. A review committee comprised of staff members will review the applications and make recommendations to Provost Feinstein.
