Faculty Success Program Grant: Call for Applications

Summer 2017 Session

As part of our institutional membership in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, campus faculty and postdoctoral fellows may participate in the Faculty Success Program at a discounted tuition rate.

The Faculty Success Program provides participants with a supportive community committed to accelerating productivity and advancing career goals. UC faculty have benefitted from the Faculty Success Program through:

  • Setting achievable personal and professional goals
  • Establishing a consistent, healthy, and sustainable daily writing routine
  • Developing a publication profile that exceeds the institution's promotion criteria
  • Mastering best-practices in academic time management
  • Identifying areas of resistance and developing strategies to move through them
  • Nourishing physical and emotional health
  • Providing a supportive community to process challenges and celebrate successes

The Summer 2017 session runs from May 21 - August 12, 2017.

UCI ADVANCE will provide a limited number of small (up to $1000 each) career development grants. There is also a small pool of grants for former or current UC President's and UCI Chancellor's ADVANCE Postdoctoral fellows on a first come first served basis.

The current cost of tuition is $3450. Additional funding may be procured by speaking with your school's dean. In the event that no additional funding is available, applicants will be responsible for funding the program balance.


Grants are available to Postdoctoral students, Assistant Professors, and newly tenured Associate Professors
