Faculty Development Grant


The Faculty Development Grant was established in the 1990s at the initiative of the Faculty Development Committee of the BMCC Academic Senate. It is organized and administered by the Faculty Development Committee and funded by the Office of Academic Affairs. Its purpose is to support fulltime faculty members in their scholarly and creative activity. Fulltime faculty throughout the college are encouraged to apply. Faculty may apply as individuals or as a team. The maximum grant award is $5,000 and a maximum of twelve grants will be awarded. Fulltime tenured or tenure track faculty may request summer salary or reassigned time up to a $5,000 limit. Grant recipients will be asked to share their work with the BMCC community by giving a presentation in collaboration with CETLS and by creating a concise web-based write-up of their project. The write-ups will become part of a project showcase on the CETLS web site.
