Is There Any Other Paperwork I Need To Complete?

Yes. Faculty requesting funding for conference presentations must provide documentation of acceptance along with their proposal.  Faculty should also submit their original receipts, expense form, and Faculty Development approval to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Finally, recipients of Faculty Development funds will also be required to complete an outcomes assessment survey about their professional activity.

How Soon Will I Hear About The Status Of My Proposal?

Usually within 2 - 3 weeks after the submission deadline. The committee generally meets 7 - 10 days after the submission deadline. Recommendations are made to the Vice President for Academic Affairs soon after that meeting. Faculty can expect to receive word about their Proposals from that office in a week to 10 days after that.

Do I Have To Type My Proposal?

Yes. Handwritten submissions will be returned to faculty without committee review. Faculty may type directly on the downloadable forms or enter text in the provided fields using Microsoft Word.
