Do you have an INNOVATIVE IDEA for improving your students’ engagement in class?
Do you wish you could find a way to try new course delivery or instructional techniques?
Would funding support help you turn your ideas into actions?
WE HAVE A SOLUTION FOR YOU!
Because we believe that your ideas – big, small, and everything in between – can make a vital difference in student success and achievement, the BCC Foundation is offering funding to faculty, full and part time, for Teaching Grants (up to $1,500 each) – and these funds are within reach.
- Identify and document the issue/problem/concern your idea addresses.
- Propose a solution and your implementation game plan.
- Submit your “concept” using the Project Concept Form (on this form, under Funding Source, make sure to indicate Teaching Grants. (The Professional Development Steering Committee will begin reviewing proposals following the October 1st submission deadline, and successful applicants will be notified.)) and a Project Expense Spreadsheet located on the Grants Planning website by October 1
- Send completed applications (including all signatures) to the Teaching Resource Center care of Deena Price mailstop # 56.
- Implement and track your solution in the Spring 2013 Semester.
- Submit a report to let everyone know of your successes by July 30th 2013 (so you get all those great pats on the back) and so others can learn from your experience.
Yes, it is really, that simple!
Don’t let these funds sit on the table when they can help you, your students, and your fellow educational leaders make an even greater difference in the classroom.

Teaching Grant Expense Sheet
The BCC Foundation Teaching Grant Program is designed to stimulate faculty to develop and implement extraordinary projects that support the Academic Affairs Division strategic initiatives. 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 BCC Foundation/F-SA Professional Development funds.
The Vice President for Academic Affairs issues a “Request for Proposals” early in the spring semester. Proposals are collected and reviewed during the spring semester for funding the following year. Full details can be found in the Professional Development public folder in Microsoft Outlook.
