RF/SUNY Center for Professional Development Scholarship Program

The RF and CPD are working together in this new partnership, in part, to develop training courses specifically tailored for the research community. An RF/CPD Scholarship Program has also been established, using CPD membership points, to financially support SUNY researchers with CPD-sponsored professional development to enhance the capability of SUNY faculty and increase SUNY's competitive advantage. RF employees affiliated with SUNY (Faculty, Post-Doctoral Scholars, Research Assistants, Fellows, Sponsored Program Administrators, etc.) are encouraged to apply. Research Foundation/SUNY CPD scholarships are available each quarter; the award amounts vary depending on the cost of the professional development programs requested. These scholarship points can be used to pay for the new Grants Writing course or professional development.
