The Title III grant designates annual funding for faculty development. In the Title III grant proposal, faculty development was identified as a key method for enhancing academic programs and transforming instruction at Methodist. As a result, approximately $30,000 will be awarded annually during the five-year grant period to faculty who submit qualifying professional development proposals.
Qualifying faculty development opportunities constitute any experiences that meet the criteria below. These opportunities may vary in form, including but not limited to conferences, workshops, classes, and short-term in-field work experiences. The qualifying criteria for Title III grant funding are:
The Faculty Development Opportunity Award has been established to annually award a minimum of 15 faculty members for qualifying professional development opportunities. Most awards will be a maximum of $2,000. To apply for a Faculty Development Opportunity Award, faculty members should complete a Faculty Development Proposal Form (see the reverse side of this sheet) and submit it to Dr. Lassiter or Dr. Morgan in the Title III Office. It will then be reviewed by the Faculty Development Awards Committee which is charged with selecting proposals for funding, the Academic Dean to assure the conference meets the goals of the strategic plan and the President for final approval upon the recommendation of the Academic Dean. Mini-grant proposals submitted by October 30 will receive first consideration. Funds will be awarded on a rolling basis, and proposals will be accepted as long as funds are available.
If selected for a faculty development award, the budget parameters listed in your proposal will likely be the amounts included in the award. Please keep this in mind as you complete the Faculty Development Opportunity Award proposal. Actual expenses cannot exceed the budget parameters listed in the award.
