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 a 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:
- An expense form and receipts for expenditures that supported the work of the project
(Please note: Original, itemized receipts for all items $10 or more 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.
- A brief written summary (two-pages, double-spaced, maximum) of accomplishments in
The report must be submitted to the Office of the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President
for Academic Affairs within three 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.
If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the Office of the Dean of
the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs at ext. 5705.
