The NCFDD also offers the Faculty Success Program (“Faculty Bootcamp”), which requires additional fees. The Provost has designated up to $12,000 each year to support faculty to participate in the Faculty Success Program. Faculty who are interested in the Program are encouraged to consult with the Director of the Learning and Teaching Center for more information about the program and how it has benefited Carleton faculty.

Applications for grants to provide either full or partial support for participation in the Faculty Success Program will be considered on a rolling basis, but for best consideration faculty wishing to participate in the Fall Program should apply for funding by June 1 and those wishing to participate in the Spring Program should apply for funding by September 1.

Faculty interested in applying for these funds should send a brief letter of application to the Provost describing their interest and goals in participating in the program
