The AdvanceRIT Project, Faculty Career Development, and the Office of the Provost offer this grant program to support leadership and career development for all tenured and tenure-track faculty at RIT. The Connect Grants Program includes two distinct funding tracks. The first is a “Faculty/Faculty Group” Connect Grant available to individuals or faculty groups (formal or ad hoc), tenured and tenure-track faculty.  The second is a “Department” Connect Grant. For both tracks, successful grant proposals will support one or more of the AdvanceRIT project goals. Click here for application details, due dates, and previous grant recipients.

AdvanceRIT also offers the AdvanceRIT Partnership Grant which provides funding to campus partners to support new activities which are closely aligned with the AdvanceRIT objectives and do not lend themselves to the Connect  Grant structure or timing. Read more here.
