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.
- Access Sample Audio of the Faculty Success Program. This can be used as a follow up resource for a sponsor or for your own preparation for a conversation.
- If you want to know if other people at your institution have participated in the Faculty Success Program, email us at Bootcamp@FacultyDiversity.org
Our Making the Ask training is a highly effective system used by faculty members to secure funding for the Faculty Success Program. Occasionally, however, we have individuals who don't get funded, so we've set up a system where every term we offer full-tuition scholarships exclusively to people who have made the ask at their institution and been turned down. To read more about each scholarship, click here. To qualify for one of these scholarships, participants must meet the following criteria:
- Complete our Making the Ask training (download above).
- Follow the steps and Make the Ask for support at your college or university.
- Document who you asked, how you asked, and the outcome of your requests. Complete our quick and simple "Making the Ask" form here: https://goo.gl/forms/FQxfrTAAEL4q0QLL2
Scholarship Deadline for Spring 2017: Friday, December 2, 2016 at 5 PM EST.
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!"
