College Mini Grants Funding for course enhancements
The Dean of the College invites proposals from College Faculty for mini-grants for the WINTER TERM 2021. Budgetary constraints require a competitive process. No one faculty member will be funded for more than one mini-grant per term. Mini-grants will be competitive this year and priority will be given to those who have not previously been funded.
Mini-Grants are for Course Enhancements
Proposals of up to $750 for enhancements to specific departmental or interdisciplinary program courses to be taught in WINTER TERM 2021 will be considered. The number of proposals your department or program may submit depends on the # of full-time faculty (for departments) or the # of courses offered in the fall (for programs). Please budget modestly; the smaller each individual request, the more requests we can grant. Due to COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, mini-grants will not fund in-person visitors to classes. However, proposals that include class visits via zoom or other virtual means will be considered ($250 maximum zoom honorarium).
Mini-Grants Submission Deadlines
Faculty: Using the attached proposal form, submit your Mini-Grant proposal to your dept./program head for endorsement by December 4, 2020.
Dept./program heads: Operating under the constraints listed below, submit proposals from your dept./program to Jinky Garrett (email@example.com) by Dec. 11, 2020. If submitting multiple proposals from your dept./program, please rank in order of priority and provide a brief explanation.
1 mini-grant proposal Depts. with 4-5 FT members or Programs with 1-2 courses
2 mini-grant proposals Depts. with 6-10 FT members or Programs w/ 3-14 courses
