» Faculty Fund

Faculty are in a unique position to positively affect their students and see their success firsthand. Through their work with students, faculty members can easily identify potential opportunities for enhancement within their school or college and within their own individual programs.

Donations to the Faculty Fund ultimately give those who work closest with our students the tools to be able to achieve their academic goals, meet Chapman's mission and advocate for their colleagues' priorities with student success in mind.

A selected team of faculty from WCAHSS, known as the Faculty Fund Committee, will review and authorize proposals for distributing these funds.

Application Process:

Faculty complete online application. The application will be reviewed by the Faculty Fund Committee. The committee will review and award faculty with funds from this gift account. Applications are accepted throughout the AY. Maximum award is $500.00 per faculty member per AY.
