Funding Limits: The total funding limit for fiscal year will remain at $2,000 per person. Multiple applications are permitted, but the approval of subsequent applications may be subject to considerations of an equitable allocation of opportunities.
Supported Expenses: Faculty Development & Presentation Grants support the professional development of faculty by funding the presentation of faculty research and opportunities to improve their teaching and research. Read the specific Criteria for Faculty Development & Presentation Grants before completing an application. The application must address at least one of the listed criteria. Also, note the types of expenditures that are excluded under these criteria. Activities which do not meet the listed criteria may be approved only in rare exceptions and require extraordinary justification. General restrictions on expenses may be found in the Budget Guidelines and FAQ.
Review Process: The school’s Faculty Grants Committee will rank applications on a scale of 0 to 3, where 0 means do not fund, 1 means fund if resources are available, 2 means recommended for funding, and 3 means recommended with a high priority. The committee will consider the clarity with which the proposed activities are presented, the degree to which the criteria are met, the clarity with which the proposed benefits to the applicant and The Citadel are presented, the apparent feasibility of the proposed activity, and cost effectiveness of the proposed expenditures.
