The program provides support to help cover the special expenses involved in the pursuit of these activities. This grant program is designed to assist with projects not typically funded through the Professional Development Assistance Program.
- Typically, projects are funded up to $1,500.
Requests for proposals generally occur in the early part of the Fall Semester.

Considerations for the Teaching Grant Selection Committee
Considerations will be provided at a later date.
When making decisions concerning the allocation of funds, the Teaching Grant Selection Committee takes numerous factors into consideration, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Teaching Grant projects directly in support of academic and/or strategic initiatives.
- Innovation is new to the campus or to the area/division.
- Completed applications received by the announced deadline will receive full consideration.
- The number of students and/or faculty impacted, or potentially impacted, by the project.
- Projects that will have an impact that extends beyond the project timeline/grant cycle.
- Projects that are easily transferred or expanded beyond the pilot to other students, classrooms, and/or areas of campus.
- Projects for which the budget clearly corresponds to the project concept form.
- Projects not typically funded through PDAP or departmental operational funds.
- Projects considered to be above and beyond course development or other responsibilities expected as part of the faculty role.
- Projects that have measurable outcomes.
- Projects for which funding is requested for supplies and equipment.
- Projects for which technology requests are supported within the current IT support structure or have approval of the IT department.
- Projects that do not have continuing costs, or have continuing costs supported by other sources.
Full and part-time teaching and non-classroom faculty who have a project that impacts teaching and learning will receive equal consideration for teaching grant funding.
The Teaching Grant Selection Committee may choose to use the following strategies when allocating limited funds:
- Reduce the maximum awarded to a project.
- Fund selected initiatives based on the above and other considerations. This implies that not all initiatives may be funded.
