The Office of the Provost and Faculty Career Development created this grant program to provide funds for adjunct faculty to be used toward their professional development for activities such as attending conferences, workshops, meetings, or delivering presentations as a means to further their expertise in teaching at RIT.
Adjuncts at RIT may apply for up to $500 in funding, once per academic year. To be eligible for this funding you must have taught at RIT for at least two semesters and will be continuing as an adjunct instructor at RIT (to be verified by department head). Priority will be given to faculty who have not received a previous Adjunct Professional Development grant. Adjunct faculty who have not completed projects/used grant funds previously awarded or have not submitted an outcome report for a prior grant will not be eligible for a new grant-funded activity.
Application Process and Guidelines

Funding Decisions and Reporting Requirements

We would like to share your experience and request that all grant recipients help disseminate their results by completing a brief report following the project’s completion sharing the impact of this grant on your professional development, success in your discipline, teaching, etc. Your outcomes may be used on the FCDS website or other materials.
