Who may apply?
All tenured, tenure track, and full time temporary Faculty and
Librarians who were under contract as of September 1 of the
current academic year may apply for funding.
When are the application deadlines?
There are three application deadlines: September 24, 2012,
November 26, 2012 and March 4, 2013.
Where are the application forms?
We have moved to an on-line application. You
can find the link by clicking on CELTSS Funding in the menu on
Who considers the application?
A Review Committee comprised of members of the Steering
Committee review proposals and make recommendations for
funding to the Steering Committee. Recommendations are then
sent to the Vice-President of Academic Affairs for approval.
Funds are not available through the Business Office until
Academic Affairs approves the request.
Must I apply for travel funds prior to completing my travel?
It is best to apply for funds prior to traveling to a conference.
However, you may apply for funding after the travel has occurred.
Is there a priority for awarding travel funds?
Proposals for travel funds to be used for participation in a
conference or presentation of research/teaching pedagogy are
given priority over travel funds designed merely for attendance
at a conference. Groups of faculty who are planning to prepare
a faculty development workshop as a result of their experience
at a conference are also given priority over single applicants.
Is there funding for release time from courses?
CELTSS recommends funding for two types of course releases;
both are available only for Spring semester. Faculty cannot receive
more than one CELTSS course release within a five year period.
Pretenure course releases: Faculty members who will be considered
for tenure in two to three years time may apply for a spring course
release to aid them in preparing materials for their tenure file. Faculty
coming up for tenure in their 3rd or 4th year are ineligible for this
Post-tenure course releases: Faculty members who have earned
tenure can apply for a course release to facilitate research or other
professional development. The department chair's approval is
required for all course release requests.
