Ongoing Grant Offerings


Due to the current budget crisis, CTL is unsure what funding it will have available to fund travel, memberships, or other professional development opportunities that take place after June 1, 2022 and is thus not approving any travel grant applications at this time.  We hope to have a confirmed budget and any required restrictions on 2022-2023 professional development funding in place by May 31, 2022.
Until then, please continue to submit your travel/professional membership applications and we will do our best to evaluate them and let you know whether it has been approved or not by mid-June.
Please contact Jennifer L. Bankers-Fulbright ( or if you have any questions about this temporary policy.
