Professional Development Funding

The California State University (CSU) Chancellor’s Office has awarded our University funding to expand the impact of the CSU Affordable Learning Solutions initiative. As part of that, SF State has been providing $250 to $750 per faculty in cash grants to help faculty deliver affordable, zero cost-course materials to students across various departments! With our year-round open grant applications, you can receive cash grants to make your project idea(s) a reality and positively impact student success.   

Designed with faculty in mind, submit your AIM grant application through our accessible Qualtrics surveys. Join your colleagues and community of faculty who are dedicated to student success — the heart of our campus.
