AY 14-15 Funding CLOSED

Who may apply?

All tenured, tenure track, and full time temporary Faculty and
Librarians who were under contract as of September 1 of the
current academic year may apply for funding.  However, full time
temporary Faculty are not eligible for course releases.

When are the application deadlines?

There are four application deadlines:
September 15, 2014 for course releases for Spring 15 or Fall 15
September 29, 2014
November 12, 2014
March 2, 2015.

Where are the application forms?

We have moved to an on-line application. You
can find the link by clicking on CELTSS Funding in the menu on
the left.

Who considers the application?

A Review Committee comprised of members of the Steering
Committee review proposals and make recommendations for
funding to the Steering Committee. Recommendations are then
sent to the Vice-President of Academic Affairs for approval.
Funds are not available through the Business Office until
Academic Affairs approves the request.

Must I apply for travel funds prior to completing my travel? 

It is best to apply for funds prior to traveling to a conference.
However, you may apply for funding after the travel has occurred.

Is there a priority for awarding travel funds?

Proposals for travel funds to be used for participation in a
conference or presentation of research/teaching pedagogy are
given priority over travel funds designed solely for attendance
at a conference. Groups of faculty who are planning to prepare
a faculty development workshop as a result of their experience
at a conference are also given priority over single applicants.

Is there funding for release time from courses?

CELTSS recommends funding for two types of course releases,
pretenure and post-tenure.  Faculty cannot receive more than
one CELTSS course release within a five year period. Your
department chair's approval is required for all course release requests.

Pretenure course releases: Faculty members who will be considered
for tenure in two to three years time may apply for a spring course
release to aid them in preparing materials for their tenure file. Faculty
coming up for tenure in their 3rd or 4th year are ineligible for this
funding source.

Post-tenure course releases: Faculty members who have earned
tenure can apply for a course release to facilitate research or other
professional development.
