The grant program provides funds for adjunct faculty to be used toward their professional development, such as attending conferences, workshops, meetings, or delivering presentations as a means to further their expertise in teaching at RIT.
Each candidate 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.
