2014 Call for Applications: Professional Development Fund (PDF) Grant for Lecturers and Other Represented Unit 18 Faculty at UC Berkeley

2014 CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUND (PDF) GRANT FOR LECTURERS AND OTHER REPRESENTED UNIT 18 FACULTY AT UC BERKELEY

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%.
