Professional Development Grants are aimed to heighten the professional visibility of female faculty and of faculty from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups. Tenure-track and tenured faculty are eligible for these grants. Grant funding can be used for the following purposes:
— travel to a senior colleague’s institution or to invite a senior researcher to Cornell
— funding of professional training opportunities, e.g., training on specialized databases or equipment
Grants are generally limited to $1,500 and can be used towards travel and/or accommodations.
Applications require a supporting letter from the department chair and are accepted on a rolling basis.
