Faculty Development support grants (up to $500) occasionally are awarded to individual faculty members (both Unit A and Unit B faculty) for the Improvement of Instructional Activity and Improvement of Course Content, see link https://www.eiu.edu/fdic/supportgrants_pastrecipients.php. Application Procedure and Form for these grants will be posted here in years when these grants are available. There are no plans to funds Support Grants for FY2018-19.
The FDIC does award registration and travel (up to $100) will be awarded to faculty who want to attend regional conferences as specified by the FDIC and Faculty Development Advisory Committee. These conferences have included the Faculty Summer Institute and Brightspace Illinois Regional Conferences. These will be advertised on this site and the University Newsletter. At that point, simply register and send an email to the Director @ firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.)
