Professional Development Activities

How to access Perkins Funds for Professional Development Activities:

CCSF's Perkins CTEA program maintains funds for the professional development of career and technical education faculty. To apply, download the Perkins/SWP Professional Development Funds Application.

Given the current budget constraints and resulting limits on travel, we strongly encourage faculty to take advantage of opportunities within the SF Bay Area. Requests for professional development outside the region will be extremely limited. These requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis, must be critical to your program's advancement (e.g. required by your accrediting agency/organization) and will be dependent on the approval of college leadership.

Please note: Faculty should submit applications at least 30 days in advance of the professional development activity. The Office of Career and Technical Education will respond to your request promptly and will award funds on a first-come, first-serve basis. In 2017-18, funds may not be available after April 1, 2018 and activities must be completed by June 30, 2018.  Thank you for keeping these deadlines in mind when requesting funds for your Spring Semester and/or June activities.
