The Academic Senate Foundation for California Community Colleges is launching a new Innovation Grant next year to award scholarships for faculty in the California Community College system to attend professional development events across the state.
Faculty can apply for a grant of up to $1,500 to participate in professional development (workshops, classes, webinars, institutes and conferences). The goal of these grants would be for faculty to expand their understanding of best practices and apply them at their local colleges and share those results with the field.
Awardees would be expected to complete a short written follow up with the ASCCC on what ideas or practices they have applied and be willing to share that information with the field. Summaries of completed projects will be shared by the FASCCC and made available online to facilitate dialogue and sharing among faculty.
The ASFCCC's GivingTuesday Campaign will support the new grant by providing the first 4 scholarships for the Innovation Grant.
