The Expense Grants Program is designed to help faculty members to meet expenses that occur in connection with creative work and research. All faculty members holding the rank of lecturer or above with full-time continuing appointments are eligible. Also eligible are instructors, visiting professors, and all others with faculty rank, including part-time faculty as long as they have three years of teaching experience at Valparaiso University and the expectation of continuing employment for the next academic year. Anyone with lecturer status must provide documentation of continuing employment at Valparaiso University.
Expenses in connection with projects that lead toward attainment of a degree will not be considered.
Applications for Expense Grants shall be submitted to the Office of the Provost. New deadlines have recently been enacted by the Committee. Specific dates can be found on the deadlines web page. Generally, the deadline for the receipt of the application and all supporting documents is the last week of January.
