Connect Grants for Faculty - Call for Proposals
As part of RIT’s continued commitment to faculty success and career development the AY 2017 Connect Grants Program online application and proposal documents are now open! Deadline is Friday, October 27, 2017 by 5:00 p.m. with grant awards announced in December.
The Connect Grants drive discovery and learning within an environment that supports the development of project proposals and the process of peer review. These mini-grants encourage leadership and career development, mentoring, networking and research collaboration, while enhancing and advancing the university’s multifaceted initiatives and scholarship infrastructure.
The Connect Grants are offered through funding from AdvanceRIT and the Office of the Provost with advisory support from The Wallace Center’s Faculty Career Development Services, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, and Sponsored Research Services to support leadership and career development for all tenured and pre-tenured faculty at RIT.
