Faculty Professional Development Committee: Grants and Contracts Subcommittee
Grants are defined as money given for a specific purpose. In academia, faculty may receive grants for the performance of research, service projects, enhancing or developing pedagogical skills, and/or equipment and supplies needed to facilitate the aforementioned areas. Generally, grants are awarded based on the merit of a proposal written for said monies.
The purpose of the Grants-and Contracts Subcommittee is:
- assisting faculty with finding appropriate funding sources;
- work to encourage faculty to write proposals to help meet contractual obligations for tenure and promotion;
- aid faculty in the writing process by taking part in the editing process in order to help faculty use appropriate content and writing style germane to grant proposal;
- sponsoring grant-writing workshops for faculty.
The Grants-and Contracts Subcommittee should be a resource on campus for faculty interested in finding independent funding for their professional development.
