Applications are now being requested for PDF 2014 grant funding. Grants of $500 to $10,000 are available for teaching, research, and scholarship. Would you like to attend a conference in France, do research in Brazil, or fieldwork in China? And have it paid for by the University of California? Apply for a Professional Development Fund Grant and make it happen.
The Lecturers' Professional Development Fund supports lecturers and other eligible Unit 18 non-Senate faculty by funding professional development activities that can enhance scholarly and pedagogical endeavors, including intellectual and research activities that contribute to faculty scholarship and effectiveness as teachers and mentors. In recent contract negotiations, UC-AFT bargained an increase in the Professional Development Fund from $135 to $200 per Unit 18 FTE, an increase of almost 50%.
Professional Development Fund Grants are open to all Unit 18 non-Senate faculty (lecturers and other faculty covered by the Unit 18 contract) with teaching appointments on the UC Berkeley campus. You are eligible if you had or have an appointment during summer 2013, fall 2013, or spring 2014.
I will select and have cataloged and digitized 1,500 images from a much larger collection. The images are of religious and architectural subjects, taken between 1983 and 2005, in South and Southeast Asia. The digitized images would be used in my course presentation and would also be donated, with partial transfer of copyright, to the university library.
