UPDATE: The funding source mentioned below is no longer in use. Instead, all non-regular faculty can apply for funding via the SRCA website. Here is the link: https://research.viu.ca/internal-funding-opportunities. – Sept. 2020
Following a vote by the membership at the 2017 VIUFA AGM, a $2000/year professional development fund for non-regular members has been established. This fund is meant for non-regulars who are ineligible for the Travel and Conference Proceedings Fund (i.e. less than 50% workload) or were hired after deadlines passed for either the VIUFA Research, Scholarly Activity, and Curriculum Development Fund or the Travel and Conference Proceedings Fund.
To be eligible, faculty must have non-regular status. Limited term contract instructors are ineligible.
See the Terms of Reference for more information about this new opportunity, or download an application form.
