In addition to the $500 in professional development money guaranteed to members by the university through our contract, 10 grants of up to $500 are now available to members in good standing through a fund gifted to NTFC. This is a one-time funding cycle. When these ten grants are allotted, the fund will be closed.
HOW DO I APPLY?
Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis for the 2019-2020 academic year. Applications will be reviewed by our Stewards Council once a month. After a decision has been made, successful applicants will be notified promptly. They will receive their funds via direct deposit or check within two weeks of notification of their award.
WHAT CAN I USE THESE FUNDS FOR?
The professional development grant is to be used for expenses including but not limited to: presenting at a conference, attending a conference, research and/or teaching-related materials, and traveling for the purpose of research.
These grants are made possible by generous donations from Dorothee Schneider, a former member of NTFC who retired from her position at the history department in 2019. As a union member, Dorothee was a model organizer and leader. Now, as a NTFC alum, she has decided to give back to her union even more. Thank you Dorothee!
