The 皇冠365 Foundation is proud to announce that projects submitted by Dr. Melissa Fulgham and Dr. Lesa Presley have been selected to receive funding through the Faculty Enhancement Grant for the Fall 2023 cycle. 

  • Melissa Fulgham - $1,354 – History – Present at the Texas State Historical Association Annual Meeting Feb/March 2024
  • Lesa Presley - $1,639 – Natural Sciences Division – Attendance of Faculty at Texas Association of Advisors to Health Professions (TAAHP) Annual Conference

Total Award - $2,993

The Faculty Enhancement fund was established in 2018 by Dr. Doug Richey along with the support of members of the Faculty Senate.  The purpose of the fund is to help supplement the cost of faculty professional development opportunities.  Dr. Richey’s hope is that this initiative, embraced by the Faculty Senate, will encourage all 皇冠365 faculty to become more involved in helping each other participate in special development events.

There will be two grant cycles each year, one in the fall and one in the spring.  During the 2023-2024 year, a total of $3,000 will be available for award during each cycle. (Total of $6,000 for the 2023-2024 academic year.)

During each cycle, the Foundation may fund multiple projects at lesser amounts or one project for the full $3,000 amount.

  • Fall Deadline – 5 p.m., Monday, October 2, 2023
  • Spring Deadline - 5 p.m., Monday, February 12, 2024
