Open Scholarship Opportunities

Curriculum Institute Scholarship

The Academic Senate Foundation is proud to offer scholarships for part-time faculty to attend the ASCCC Curriculum Institute on July 12-15, 2023, to be held in-person at the Riverside Convention Center and virtually via Zoom Conference. This year’s Curriculum Institute is themed: Delivering the Promise of Higher Education Through California Community College Curriculum. This event provides opportunities for in-depth conversations, collective voice, leadership and empowerment, and as such, we invite part-time faculty from all disciplines to apply to attend this professional development opportunity.  Please download the application and submit by Sunday, June 4, 2023, 11:59PM.

Innovation Scholarship

The ASFCCC is pleased to announce the new Innovation Scholarship. The goal of this new scholarship is to provide faculty with funding to attend ASCCC events as well as external events and conferences to expand their understanding of best practices and apply them to their local college and share those results with the field at large. Special consideration will be given to grants that promote and enhance Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-racism.

Scholarship winners can fill out the FASCCC Reimbursement Form when need to be reimbursed for expenses.
