The Office of Faculty Affairs and Faculty Career Development are sponsoring a limited number of partial scholarships for the NCFDD Faculty Success Program, an online, 12-week intensive mentoring program. The Faculty Success Program is a “boot camp” designed to improve research productivity and work-life balance. The Faculty Success Program is for tenure-track or tenured faculty (assistant or associate professor rank) who are looking for a combination of empirically-tested methods to improve research productivity, with coaching and peer support to propel personal growth to a whole new level. For more information on the program, visit facultydiversity.org. The program runs from May 17-August 8, 2020.
This scholarship will include 50% of the program fee of $3,950 for registrations before March 23 (non-refundable). The required NCFDD individual membership is covered through RIT's institutional membership but scholarship applicants must sign up at the NCFDD site (facultydiversity.org) before a scholarship application will be considered.
In addition to the online application for the program, a letter of commitment for matching funds ($1,975) from the applicant's department or College must accompany the application and be forwarded to FCDS@rit.edu.
