Call for Faculty Professional Development Grants



The European Union Center welcomes applications for EUC Professional Development Grants for the second half of AY 2020-21. This call continues the spirit of past calls to support research travel or to present a paper at an academic conference. Recognizing that such travel is not happening, we invite University of Illinois faculty to submit proposals for registration fees for conference presentations or for workshops that offer training directly relevant to their teaching and research at the university. We provide funding of up to $500 for such participation, with the stipulation that it be completed by August 15, 2021. We expect to offer multiple awards in each category, depending in part on the individual amounts requested and awarded. This professional development grant is funded by our multi-year US Department of Education Title VI grant. Learn more here.

The deadline to apply is February 5, 2021.
