Faculty Development Grants and Awards

FDGA Documents, Guidelines & Policies

The Faculty Development Grants and Awards (FDGA) Program is dedicated to the development of faculty in their creative inquiry and growth as educators, scholars, artists, designers, business innovators and industry-related professionals.

What is FDGA?

FIT faculty members, including full-time classroom, non-classroom and adjunct faculty are encouraged to apply for funding. The FDGA Committee is comprised of elected members of the faculty and supported by the Director of Faculty Development, representing the Office of Academic Affairs. Together, the Committee and the Director review applications for faculty grants. Recommendations for funding are then forwarded to the Office of Academic Affairs for final approval.

In addition, the FDGA Committee participates in the review of SUNY Chancellors Awards Applications and makes recommendations to the President. Final approval for all SUNY Chancellors Awards is made in Albany.
