Assistance Fund for Contingent Faculty

The CCCC Assistance Fund for Contingent Faculty, established in 2012, is intended to support awards in the amount of $500 each for contingent faculty at two-year colleges and four-year colleges and universities to travel to the CCCC Annual Convention. 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. The deadline for applicants will be December 31, 2016, for awards to attend the March 2017 Convention. Recipients will be chosen at random in early January.

Application Process

Please email your name, email, and mailing address information to by December 31, 2016, to be considered for the awards made in January 2017.

Other Considerations
  • 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, 2016, and December 31, 2016, will be used for the 2017 awards).
