Because of the temporary reduction in full-time faculty professional development funds allocated to Augsburg’s Faculty Development Program (aka CTL), the Program has created a grant review procedure and policy to ensure equitable funding for 2022-2023. (see link to full policy on the CTL website below)
The biggest change for faculty are the new application deadlines. To ensure
equitable distribution of grant funding, the FDC will be reviewing grants in bulk four times during the year. The deadline for your grant application depends primarily on WHEN you will be traveling/having expenses. Please note that you may submit a grant application at any time before your preferred deadline; however grants will not be reviewed until the deadline closes.
Round 2 Deadline: July 1, 2022 (for travel/expenses Sep – Nov 2022)
Round 3 Deadline: October 1, 2022 (for travel/expenses Dec 2022 – Feb 2023)
Round 4 Deadline: January 1, 2023 (for travel/expenses Mar – May 2023)
There is additional and more specific information on the CTL website (see link below) which should answer most of your questions! Please contact CTL (email@example.com) if you have any questions about this temporary policy or would like more information.
