Making The Ask: How to Get Your Institution to Invest in Your Success

We hear all the time from faculty members who want to participate in our Faculty Success Program but are struggling to find funding for their tuition. After assisting and tracking the results of our bootcamp participants over the past few years, we've come up with a clear formula for making a successful "ask."  In this 60-minute workshop, we share how to create an irresistible offer, position your participation as a win-win situation for your college, and secure a commitment from your university to provide you with the tools you need to thrive.

Faculty Success Program Scholarships:

Our Making the Ask training is a highly effective system used by faculty members to secure funding for the Faculty Success Program.

To read more about each scholarship, click here. To qualify for one of these scholarships, participants must meet the following criteria:

What Faculty Are Saying:

"I wanted to share that I used all the strategies from the conference call to get institutional support… and was able to get them to commit immediately! My chair will be pitching it to the Dean and all other junior faculty in my department to see if they can also be sponsored to participate but she told me to go ahead and register today! I am so happy I could pop!"
