Application for Spring 2020  PDAC Funding

Please note:  PDAC travel awards are funded through the generosity of the CIty Tech Foundation. Due to  current budgetary limitations it is anticipated that funding will be  approximately $300 per faculty member for 2019-2020. Faculty are encouraged to also solicit travel funds through their dean's office, CUNY faculty travel funds, grant funding, etc. These funding sources are independent of PDAC and require separate applications.

The mission of the Professional Development Advisory Council (PDAC) of New York City College of Technology is to support the professional development of City Tech’s full-time faculty. PDAC awards travel funds for professional development activities such as conferences, workshops and seminar travel and limits funding to formal activities such as conferences, seminars and workshops. Applications are reviewed by PDAC and those that best support the advancement of scholarship aligned with the college mission are funded. To apply for funding please complete this application. For budgetary questions (22-27) please simply fill in the dollar amount, numbers only, no words. This information is downloaded to a spreadsheet which makes automatic calculations. 

Applications received after October 11, 2019 will be reviewed with spring 2020 applications. Approved travel funds will be awarded in the order they are received until funds are exhausted, so please apply as early as possible. Award letters for spring 2020 should be distributed in late February to early March. Worthy applications received after all available funds have been committed will be wait listed and will receive award letters if funding becomes available due to trip cancellations, etc.
