PURPOSE OF CAM FACULTY DEVELOPMENT GRANTS
Faculty grants programs serve full-time faculty at CU Denver College of Arts & Media (CAM). The purpose of the CAM Faculty Development Grant (FDG) Program is to:
1.) Support tenure-track/tenured faculty and clinical teaching track faculty in their research, creative and scholarly work, professional development and teaching activities.
2.) Support full-time instructors in their teaching and learning, and professional development.
3.) Increase CAM visibility regionally, nationally and internationally.
4.) Support and prepare faculty to receive competitive national grants by providing seed funding for larger projects, grant-seeking support, and opportunities for peer review.
UPDATE 3/10/2020: NO ORS TRAVEL GRANT MATCH APPLICATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME.
