opportunities including but not limited to conferences (presentation, attending, etc), professional events at local, state,
regional, national, or international level venues, books or required materials for courses or professional trainings, internal
workshop fees, continued learning courses, or any other reasonable cost supporting staff professional development.

year. All applications and approved funding must be spent in accordance with College and University financial policies and procedures within 30 days of Award unless an extension is approved. A brief report of the funded experience is due
