Welcome to the Berkman website

The Berkman Faculty Development Fund, supported by a gift in the memory of Sybiel Altman Berkman, A'31, is a small grants program in support of professional development. Full-time faculty in teaching, research, tenure and librarian/archivist tracks are eligible.

The Berkman program was established to help support projects that would otherwise be difficult to fund. The program is directed primarily to junior faculty whose access to external support is less well developed, and to faculty working in chronically under-funded areas. In cases where a specific need is well documented, grants may be made to senior faculty and those working in fields that more easily attract outside support.

We encourage all full-time faculty to consider applying for a grant. Grants are awarded for a three-year period. For more information, click to our eligibility, guidelines, and apply pages. If you have other questions, please contact Anna Houck via email or via phone (412) 268-6991.

Submissions are accepted twice during the academic year, once in the fall semester and once in the spring.

Submission deadlines for the 2014-15 academic year:

Friday, October 16, 2015
Friday, March 4, 2016
