The Instructional Development Center awards two different grants from two different sources. The qualification requirements and application process are the same for both grants.
Faculty Development Grants - Funds are awarded from the Faculty Development fund on a competitive basis by the Faculty Development committee to faculty who submit written proposals for instructional or curricular development projects. Applications are reviewed 10-14 days after each deadline. Click on the link above for the full Guidelines. The new application can be filled out, saved, and e-mailed to your Department Chairperson and Dean to complete their portions. The Dean can e-mail the completed application to the IDC for processing.
Hunt - Farris Faculty Development Grant - In 2006, Former UCA President Jeff Farris and his wife Patsy established a $25,000 fund designated for faculty development. In the same year, Johnelle Hunt, widow of J.B. Hunt, established a similar fund of $75,000. Guidelines for these grants are the same as those for regular faculty development grants, except that funds can roll over into the next fiscal year and hence are appropriate for activities scheduled for the summer months.
