How to Apply for Other Funding


Note: The application form is at the bottom of this page; please read all relevant information before clicking on the link.


Collaborative projects: If you’d like to propose a collaborative project, please follow this link to the Teaching and Learning Center website to learn more about our programs, and email the TLC Coordinator, bcctlc@peralta.edu.


Course tuition, memberships, and subscriptions can be reimbursed but there is a new timeline for reimbursements. The PD Committee must approve your request and the District Finance Office must dispatch a Purchase Order before you pay for the activity yourself. After the PD Committee approves your request, please allow at least 3 weeks before you pay for the activity. Please scroll down and complete the Common Application to apply for reimbursement.


Food for meetings (not meals on a trip): The District has strict guidelines for food expenditures – please read this before requesting funds for food: District Administration Procedure #6385, and then use the Common Application below. You’ll be asked to submit an agenda for the meeting that demonstrates that the meeting is at least 2 hours long and is not part of regular business for the group.


Books and materials can be purchased using the same process as for course tuition and memberships. They remain the property of the college and can be added to the BCC Library’s collection for check out.

Note: Even a conference at UC Berkeley has to follow the entire travel procedure. Look at the In-State Travel page for more details.


Anything you do off-site, if you’d like the district to reimburse registration, even if you’re not asking for the transportation costs, this all counts as “travel”. Examples: registration for a seminar at UC Berkeley counts as “travel”. Request for reimbursement for conference registration anywhere that is not inside the BCC building or online, even if you are paying for the actual traveling out of pocket, counts as “travel”, and must follow the entire In-State Travel procedure.


If your request is for any event including travel (even if it is nearby, and even if you are not asking for transportation costs), you must begin the travel request process quite early, as it is long and complex, and must be completed well before the travel date. Please follow the In-State Travel procedures.
