1. Applications are to be submitted online. We recommend that you use the Professional Development Grant Proposal Template (which contains all of the questions on the online form) as a working document when collaborating with colleagues in writing the proposal. You may then cut and paste the text from the working document onto the online submission form.
2. Your application should not include your name or the name of your college except for the scanned and emailed application cover page. The contact information in the form is used for administration purposes only and will be excluded from the review process.
3. Your application is not considered complete until the PD Grant Application Cover Page is received at the System Office. The PD Grant Application Cover Page (which is to be emailed as a PDF to the PD Office when the online application is submitted) requires endorsement signatures from the applicant, co-applicant (if appropriate), dean/supervisor and vice president/provost. Some VCCS colleges also require processing of professional development grants through the college's grant office. Be sure to allow sufficient time for these steps. The Cover Page is used for administrative purposes and is not included when your grant is evaluated. Cover page and application must arrive by 5:00 pm EST on the application deadline date for the applicable semester.
