The Provost's PSU Foundation Faculty Development Awards

The Provost's PSU Foundation Faculty Development Awards are small grants for supporting scholarly activities for tenure-related faculty who have not yet received tenure. Particular attention will be given to requests for activities that share scholarly work with a national/international audience and incoporate community partners and/or demonstrate positive impact on communities. Funds are provided by the PSU Foundation, and proposals are reviewed within The Office of Academic Affairs. Funds must be spent by June 30 each year.

There is no application form. Application should be in the form of a letter that summarizes 1) the proposed development activities, 2) impact on your scholarly agenda, 3.) the national/international audiences and/or impact on community partners, and 4) a clear proposed budget.  Applications should be emailed to Donna Bergh. Note that faculty salary or release time will not be awarded through this funding program.

  • Annual funding available: $12,000
  • Awards: up to $1,000; please do not submit requests for more than $1,000
  • Due date: 5:00pm of the last business day of October.  Because of the large number of applications, no late applications will be reviewed this year. 
  • Contact: Donna Bergh, OAA, 503-725-5256
