Ad Hoc Funds Program

Faculty may apply to the Office of the DOF/VPAA for support from the Ad Hoc Funds Program. These funds have helped to support faculty with a one-semester or full year's sabbatical leave; special research, creative, or performance opportunities; ideas for curriculum innovations; and other needs which fall beyond the boundaries of programs administered by the Faculty Development Committee.

Recipients must submit a report after the grant period. The report will consist of the following:
  1. An expense form and receipts for expenditures that supported the work of the project (PLEASE NOTE: Original, itemized receipts for all items $10 or over must be attached to expense reports. Your credit card bill and the receipt showing the total amount paid for restaurant charges are not considered adequate proof of purchase.) Please be sure to review Skidmore's Travel and Entertainment Policy.
  2. A brief written summary (two-pages, double-spaced, maximum) of accomplishments in the project.
The report must be submitted to the Office of the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs within 3 months of the end of the grant period. Failure to do so may result in advances being treated as taxable income and will disqualify the faculty member from future grant opportunities.
