Faculty Professional Development Council

FPDC Grants

The FPDC grant program supports a variety of faculty activities including research, student-faculty research, and other professional development activities. As in the past, applications will be due mid-December with awards made in March or early April. Previously, the ceiling for the awards has varied between about $10,000 and $14,000. Universities are usually allowed to submit 10 or more proposals, though we do not know what limits the council will decide on this year.

The FPDC program is an excellent opportunity for faculty in need of limited funding that will directly contribute to professional development and student engagement.

The applications for this competition are short - 5 pages with a one-page budget and justification.
