REMINDER–2022-23 Individual Development Awards due 23 December 2022
Deadline for Submitting Applications: December 23, 2022.
The application process for the current round of Individual Development Awards — a benefit negotiated as part of our statewide Agreement — is now open!! New Paltz has been allocated $48,221 through the statewide Joint Labor-Management Committee (JLMC). Funds are intended to assist eligible employees to develop their full professional potential and to prepare for advancement. Funding may be provided to enhance teaching, research capabilities, professional knowledge, and skills. We have set a deadline of December 23, 2023 for receipt of completed applications.
This is a special, shortened round of IDA awards, covering the activity period of July 2, 2022 through March 31, 2023 (all activities funded by the Program must be completed by that date.) Note: For those who receive grants, all receipts and paperwork must be submitted by April 30, 2023.
The maximum grant for the IDA program for this cycle is $2,000, although given the number of applications in recent years, most grants have been awarded less than the maximum amount. Members may submit up to two (2) applications for the current activity period (July, 2, 2022-March 31, 2023) with a maximum of $2,000 in total. If you are proposing two projects, please submit them separately, via two responses to the IDA submission link provided below.
Part-timers are encouraged to apply, as 15% of the pool of funding available is initially earmarked for them; any funds left unused by part-time employee applications are swept into the remaining pool for full-timers.
To prepare your application, you should consult the general IDA Program Guidelines, and the list of Categories and Specific Exclusions that our local IDA committee has developed, out of their recent experience.
You will need to complete the main IDA Application Form, assemble the other required materials, including a brief project description, a brief CV, and supporting documents (such as a conference acceptance letter, brochure, or announcement); you can then submit everything via this link: www.newpaltz.edu/uupida
Our local SUNY New Paltz Campus Professional Development Committee, a joint labor-management committee that reviews applications and decides on funding priorities and award amounts, includes:
Maryalice Citera, Psychology, IDA Committee Chair
Rachel Rigolino, English
Helen Brocker, Academic Advising
For the Administration:
Anneliese Kniffen, HRDI
James Burns, Student Accounts
Devon Duhaney, Teaching and Learning
As in recent years, all decisions made by the local IDA committee will be reviewed by the NYS/UUP Joint Labor-Management Committees (aka GOER) prior to awarding grants.
