Stipends

CTLT offers modest stipends to eligible participants in Summer Institute.

Amounts and Pay Schedule

Eligible participants will receive a $50 stipend for completion of a half-day workshop and a $100 stipend for completion of a full-day workshop. Multiple-day course design workshops may pay larger amounts. In addition:

  • Individuals may receive stipends for up to five (5) workshops during Summer Institute.
  • Only one (1) of those five workshops may be a course design workshop.

Stipends will be issued as Additional Academic payments on the following schedule. Unless noted otherwise, stipends will be paid in the month following the date of the workshop (or the last meeting of a cohort). For example, the stipend for a one-day workshop in May will appear on a participant's June 30 paycheck. Members of a cohort with a final meeting date in August will see payment on their September 30 paycheck. Thus:

  • Stipends for May workshops will be paid at the end of June
  • Stipends for June workshops will be paid at the end of July
  • Stipends for July workshops will be paid at the end of August
  • Stipends for August workshops will be paid at the end of September

Stipends for a few workshops are administered by other campus units. For those workshops, please check with the facilitating department for information on stipends and payment.

Stipends and Eligibility

Stipends are available to full-time tenured, tenure-track, non-tenure track faculty, and A/P employees with teaching responsibilities.

Note: A/P employees may not receive stipends for workshops attended during their paid working hours. A/P employees are responsible for working with their supervisors to ensure that they are not paid twice.

Part-time employees are not eligible for stipends.

Graduate students are not eligible for stipends, but graduate students who complete the Future Faculty workshop will receive a credit on their student accounts. If their student account is already paid in full, the credit will be refunded to them.


If you need a special accommodation to fully participate in a CTLT event, please contact the front desk at (309) 438-2542.
