Part-Time Faculty Encouraged to Apply for New Mission Grants

The Center for Catholic Faith and Culture’s (CCFC) Part-Time Faculty Mission Grant application process is now open. All eligible adjunct faculty may apply.

New for this year, awardees will receive $1,000 grants for eligible projects that may include:

  • Hosting a guest speaker
  • Developing a class project
  • Sponsoring a student experience
  • Attending a conference.

Duquesne remains dedicated to building a better community through its faculty, who work hard to develop projects that expand student horizons and contribute to Duquesne’s mission and identity.

The CCFC and Office of the Provost established the grant for all eligible adjunct faculty who have an advanced degree in any discipline. Previous mission grant recipients are welcome to apply, provided they have met the reporting requirements for their previous grants and are seeking funding for different projects.

Key dates to remember:

  • Tuesday, March 16, 2021: Applications due.
  • Tuesday, April 6, 2021: Awards announced
  • Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2021: Report of project outcomes due.
