The Office of the Vice Provost for Student Success is offering academic advisors professional development awards of up to $750 to subsidize participation in advising-related professional activities and conferences or meetings during the year.

These funds may be used for the spring, summer or fall semesters of 2023. Additional awards will be disbursed early in the fall semester.
