Grant Workshops

The Center for Faculty Development collaborates with St. Thomas' Office of Sponsored Programs and the Corporate and Foundation Relations Office to provide occasional workshops on grant-seeking and grant writing.

We also offer annual information sessions for faculty preparing to submit internal Faculty Development grants such as the Sabbatical Leave, Sabbatical Assistance, and Research Grants. Information sessions are announced on our website, in Synergia, and by e-mail. 

Sabbatical Prep: An information session, offered annually in late August with members of the Faculty Development Committee, offers tips and answers questions about Sabbatical Leave and Sabbatical Assistance Grant applications.

Research Grant: An information session, offered in late Fall, provides tips for faculty preparing a Research Grant. Members of the Faculty Development Committee facilitate the session and are available to answer questions about the Research Grant, eligibility, and application process.
