✈ CETL Travel Grant

CETL is pleased to support faculty professional development opportunities by funding attendance at conferences, workshops and symposiums where the attendee focuses on issues related to teaching, learning, technology, assessment and student success. While such conferences may be linked to particular disciplines, preference will be given to conferences that focus on college teaching and learning, addressing (address) issues across a wide variety of disciplines and student populations. CETL conference travel grants are limited to $1500 and competitive. Adjunct faculty can apply for conference travel grants; up to two travel grants per year may be awarded to adjuncts.

The CETL grant applications for the 2016-2017 academic year concluded on Monday, September 19th, 2016. We look forward to your participation next year.
