Faculty Development Conference Grants

For FY 2018 and beyond, registration and travel (up to $100) will be awarded to faculty who want to attend specific regional conferences. This grant is open to all faculty who submit a travel application on a first-come-first-served basis until allotted funds are committed. No proposal form is required nor report needed, although each faculty member will need to submit the regular travel voucher and proof of attendance to receive reimbursement. We ask only that you attend and enjoy the conference selected. (We would always like you to share with us what you learned at the various sessions you attend.)

At present, the following conferences qualify for this registration+ rebate.

 - Faculty Summer Institute, iHotel, Champaign. Wednesday, May 16 - Thursday, May 17, 2018

  • Registration opens: Monday, March 5, 2017
  • Early registration deadline: Friday, April 6, 2017
  • Regular registration deadline: Tuesday, May 1, 2017

 - Brightspace (d2l) Illinois Connection, Spring 2018? (if scheduled)

Early in Spring 2018 semester, we will circulate directions on specific wording needed on each travel application. Once the registration sites are active on the above, we will provide links. For further information, contact Faculty Development, 581-7051, facdev@eiu.edu.
