Carpenter II Grants for 2023-24
The deadline for the first round of Carpenter II Grant applications for 2023-24 is April 28, 2023. These grants support faculty travel to academic conferences and workshops, for conferences that occur between June 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024.
Carpenter I Grants for 2023-24
The deadline for Carpenter I Grant applications for the 2023-24 year was February 3, 2023. These grants support new aspects of scholarship or creative endeavors during the grant period of June 2023 – June 2024.
Funds not used during the period for which they were granted due to cancellations or other complications related to COVID-19 will roll over so they can be re-allocated in future grant cycles through the usual application process. Those who received Carpenter grants for earlier grant periods and were not able to use them due to COVID-19 are encouraged to note this on their applications.
Supplemental Professional Development
The Provost’s PDA Supplemental Support funds provide the last bit of support a faculty member might need to complete a project, attend a conference, purchase specialized equipment or address other specific professional development needs.
Requests will be considered after a faculty member has secured and identified other funding. This other funding can and should include Program S&S, Division support, Carpenter Grants, personal PDA, pooled PDA funds, grants, etc. The Provost’s Supplemental Support funds come from unused PDA allocations, so the available funds will always be smaller compared to the number of faculty SOU. These funds will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis so they can be fully allocated each academic year.
Requests should be reasonable in size and should support APSOU members (including year-long members). A suggested request size and use might be similar to a faculty member’s annual PDA allocation.
To submit a request for Supplemental Professional Development please request the form from your Division Director.
