In a continuing effort to support lecturers in their teaching mission, the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences has set up two funds, which the council oversees, the WCAS-CLI Professional Development Fund (PDF) which reimburses travel and expenses for conferences and workshops and The Teaching Enhancement Fund (TEF) which pays for projects which directly enhance the quality of language instruction. The council encourages lecturers to apply for funds available through the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and the University. To apply for either of these, please follow the instructions on the Funding Instructions PDF. (Please read before completing a funding application.)
Deadlines to submit application to all CLI funds AY 2012-2013
