Committee for Faculty Scholarship and Development

Purpose

The goal of the Committee for​ Faculty Scholarship and Development (CFS&D) is to encourage faculty scholarship (e.g. research, creative activity), professional development, and training. The Committee also seeks to assure transparency in the allocation process for faculty support and to communicate the results of funding with the RIC community and beyond.

The Committee performs several functions. Each semester, it awards Major Grant requests for up to $4,000 and Mini Grant requests for under $1500. The Committee also awards faculty reassigned time. Please see below for more information.

Reassigned Time Deadline and Application Instructions

The deadline for reassigned time to be taken in the Spring 2020 semester is October 15, 2019.

To Receive Grant Reimbursements:

To prevent undue burden on grants administration personnel, recipients are requested to submit requests for reimbursement in a timely manner (within one month of expenditure).

Travel r​eimbursements must be accompanied by a travel report, which you can find on this page:

http://www.ric.edu/accounting/Pages/tforms.aspx​

Please print your travel report (Excel file) and sign. Attach all original receipts to that form and send to Kieran Ayton in the Adams Library, Room 404. He will forward your request for reimbursement to Mary West in Grants Accounting. Accounting requires originals to process payment. Department Chair signature is not required, but you must include this letter with your request. Your reimbursement request will be reviewed by both Accounting and Grants Accounting. 

​If you have additional questions, please contact Mary West.
