Faculty/Staff Professional Development Grants

The CCAM Faculty/Staff Professional Grant program was created to support activities that lead to professional development and community engagement for faculty/staff in the College of Creative Arts and Media.

CCAM faculty applying for support of professional development for non-juried activities (ie. attending a conference or workshop) are eligible for one $350 award during the 2024-25 academic year, as funding remains available. Applications will be assessed on the activity's significance; faculty rank (with priority given to those in early career ranks); expected outcomes; and historically positive outcomes. Staff are eligible for the Professional Development Grant on a case-by-case basis.

Applications must be submitted a minimum of 4 weeks in advance of the activity. There are 4 application deadlines throughout the academic year: Sept. 15; Nov. 15; Jan. 15; and March 15, with award notices made shortly thereafter, subject to availability of funding.

Faculty/Staff applying for funding to support a juried/invited/accepted presentation or performance should apply for a CCAM Faculty Research and Creative Activity Grant ($500/$750).

Only one application for a CCAM Faculty/Staff Professional Grant will be funded for any individual during a given academic year.

Application and Additional Information

The maximum award per application for 2024-2025 is $350.
