Assistance Fund for Contingent Faculty

Application Deadline: December 31

Purpose: The CCCC Assistance Fund for Contingent Faculty, established in 2012, is intended to support awards in the amount of $750 each for contingent faculty at two-year colleges and four-year colleges and universities to travel to the CCCC Annual Convention.

Eligibility: Applicants must reside more than 300 miles from the convention site. The number of available awards each year will be dependent on the donations raised each year from the CCCC membership.

Award Specifics: The deadline for applicants will be December 31, 2024, for awards to attend the April 2025 Convention. Please complete this application form (including name, email, and address information) by December 31, 2024, to be considered for the awards made in January 2024.

Recipients will be chosen at random in early January.

Other Considerations:

  • In the event that the CCCC Annual Convention moves to an online-only event with no in-person component, recipients will receive a complimentary registration for the convention in lieu of any travel funds.
  • Individuals not selected to receive an award can receive priority the following year in a weighted system (ex., individuals not selected the first year will receive 2 entries the following year and if not selected that year, receive 3 entries the following year, and so on).
  • Individuals who receive this award may not receive a CCCC Professional Equity Project grant in the same year.
  • CCCC member contributions for the CCCC Assistance Fund for Contingent Faculty will be solicited during November and December each year, however, contributions will be accepted throughout the year. Contributions collected throughout a given calendar year will be applied to the awards in the subsequent calendar year (e.g., contributions collected between January 1, 2024, and December 31, 2025, will be used for the 2025 awards).
