2019-2020 Faculty Handbook

Endowed Chairs and Grants

Endowed Chair Faculty Awards are available to faculty members who are seeking monetary resources to enhance their work in the classroom and the learning experience of their students. The awards are given for a three-year time frame. Each year, the faculty chair holder receives a $2,000 unrestricted award with an additional $4,000 available through the Foundation to spend on an approved project or activity. Some examples of past expenditures include specialized lab or training equipment, computer software, guest speakers or presenters, educational seminars and training, travel, and other equipment such as cameras, iPads and Pod-Cast equipment.

Endowed Chairs and Grants provide resources for an individual faculty member, a department and CF to further develop the learning environment. Faculty members may contact the appropriate budget supervisor in their respective departments to inquire about securing grant funds for a particular project. Grant categories are: State-of-the-Art Learning, Cultural Environment, Educational Environment and New Initiative.

Additional information on Endowed Chairs and Grants, including the application process and criteria, is located on the CF intranet under CF Foundation/Forms.
