IU South Bend provides funds annually in support of associate faculty development. These funds are used to award grants, through competitive application procedures, to associate faculty in support of travel and attendance at professional meetings, or other activities of direct benefit to the individual's University-related professional development.
The awards will be limited to not more than $500 per faculty member, per year. Limitation of available resources may prevent complete funding of a project. The committee gives priority to support for research, presentation of papers at professional meetings, and attendance at professional meetings, in that order.
