Application Process

Application Process

The Academic Professional Development Committee (APDC) is an elected faculty committee that supports the continuing growth of individuals as scholars and educators. The APDC Awards/Grants subcommittee, in collaboration with Academic Affairs, reviews proposals and selects grantees.

Deadlines: All applications and supporting materials must be completed and submitted via email to Glenna Whitmill in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs on the following dates: 

  • Fall Deadline: October 15 (funds must be used by May 31 of that Academic Year)
  • Spring Deadline: April 15 (funds must be used during the following Academic Year)

Note: When the submission date for grant proposals falls on a weekend, the closing date will be the following Monday.

Applicants will receive an email confirming the receipt of their application.

Eligibility: All St. Catherine University faculty are eligible to apply (Adjunct faculty are not eligible). Priority will be given to faculty who have not received an APDC grant within the past two years.

Application: Use the Application Instructions, Cover Page and Budget Template with applications for either a Curriculum Development Award or a Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities Grant.

Help Files: These additional files may provide assistance in proposal development and writing. The Guidelines for Letters of Support, Budget Justification Guidelines and Useful Hints for Developing Research Projects may have information useful to you, especially if you are an emerging proposal writer.
