CELTSS Funding

The Office of Academic Affairs provides funds for faculty and librarian professional development based upon recommendations from CELTSS.

Funding is available in several categories:
     - course release
     - conducting research and creative work
     - presenting research and creative work
     - teaching and learning
     - attendance at conferences or other professional workshops

After the CELTSS funding subcommittee evaluates and recommends requests for funding, all requests must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs. Academic Affairs will provide a letter for all approved requests; the Business Office requires the letter before your expenses can be reimbursed.

Please review funding guidelines before completing your application.

We will have three rounds of funding. Each individual may receive up to a $1,500 maximum award, in each category, in each funding round. For Rounds 2 and 3, the Funding subcommittee will give priority to faculty who have not yet received funding in the current academic year. If funds are still available after Round 3, the Funding subcommittee will consider applications in a fourth round of funding. 

Individuals can apply to multiple categories in the same round for different projects. Individuals can apply to multiple rounds for the same project.

Applicants are expected to use their departmental travel allocations before seeking CELTSS funding in any category. The Funding subcommittee reserves the right to consider the feasibility of the project, the fit with the CELTSS charge to support faculty development, and the range of other applications in each round of funding.
