The goal of the Faculty Mentoring Grant program is for faculty mentoring groups to participate in activities or projects that will help their existing mentoring group to be successful or to develop and implement a new mentoring model, group, or program. These faculty mentoring grants are not intended to support faculty-student mentoring activities; they are intended for faculty career development.
The mentoring projects or activities for which you are requesting grant funds must be related to faculty teaching excellence, dissemination of your scholarly works, or grant proposal development in support of faculty. You may submit proposals that will assist with the formation of a new mentoring framework or expand on an existing mentoring program or group for faculty. “Mentoring groups” are defined as groups (two or more members) that meet on a regular basis for mutual support and development. Submissions for both Interdisciplinary and department-specific mentoring projects are welcome. Faculty/faculty groups may apply for up to $2,000.
As these grants are intended to be collaborative in nature, activities related to general professional development and/or individual faculty activities or projects will not be considered.
Full-time tenured, tenure-track faculty, principal lecturers, senior lecturers, or lecturers in Academic Affairs at RIT may apply for a grant on behalf of the mentoring group.
If you are submitting a proposal for an interdisciplinary project or activity, one person should be selected as the group's leader.
Priority will be given to faculty who have not received a Faculty Mentoring grant in the past.
Faculty who have not completed previously awarded grant-funded projects or have not submitted an “Outcome Report” for a prior grant will not be eligible for a new grant-funded activity.
Faculty may not submit more than one grant application per academic year.
Hospitality requests should not exceed 10% of total budget.
Funding for software/hardware acquisition or other equipment, professional membership fees or licensure, certification, festival/screening fees, tuition, add-pay, faculty stipends, course release, or additional faculty salaries will not be considered.
