|RIT & NTID Fellowships, Sabbaticals and Grants|
Several funding opportunities exist at RIT for faculty and staff development, or for special projects that support RIT's teaching and learning activities. These include:
Faculty Leave for Professional/Career Development
Provost's Learning Innovations Grant for Faculty Projects
Guidelines, timelines and the application procedure for the 2004 competition are available at http://www.rit.edu/academicaffairs/plig/. For additional information about this competition, contact Dr. Lynn Wild, Assistant Provost for Teaching and Learning, 5-6543.
Provost's Cultural Diversity Grant
Interactive Learning Grants
These funds can support field trips, gatherings, discussions or presentations that occur outside of regular class periods and promote a richer, more collegial interchange among faculty, staff and students. These programs might occur off-campus, in the residence halls or the Student Alumni Union, or in a faculty/staff member's home. Guidelines, timelines, and the application procedure are available on the Student Affairs website, http://www.rit.edu/studentaffairs/vp_interactive_grant.php.
Ronald D. Dodge Memorial Endowment Fund Faculty Grant
Projects must have as their purpose improving the effectiveness of faculty engaged in educating deaf and hard-of-hearing students at RIT. Applications are accepted between January and March each year.
Grant applicants are expected to file appropriate documentation to establish the potential impact of the work upon deaf students at RIT. Grant recipients must be faculty who have been employed by RIT for a period of at least three academic years prior to being considered for a grant.
The Dodge Faculty Grant is offered by the NTID Office of the President and Dean in cooperation with the NTID Professional Development Program.
NTID Faculty Evaluation and Development (FEAD)
FEAD grants are linked to both the yearly appraisal as well as the Plan of Work (POW), which is developed in conjunction with that appraisal. When the faculty member's current POW identifies a professional development activity that would strengthen that faculty member's performance, this activity is eligible for FEAD support. This professional development activity should address department or NTID educational goals, or NTID/RIT strategic plans.
Guidelines, timelines and the application procedure are available on the Vice President and Dean's website at http://www.ntid.rit.edu/dean/college_policies.php.
