The Center for Teaching & Learning is currently offering the following grants, fellowships and stipends for faculty:
Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SOTL) Travel Grants
(5 grants of up to $500 each, provided annually)

Community Based Learning Seed Grants, "Problem Solving Seed Grants"

The Seed Grant has a rolling application and the proposal form may be found on the CTL website. Seed grants may be renewed once.

Every Fall the CTL sends out a call for proposals from faculty who would like to develop an online course. Course proposals must have Department approval prior to application. Course proposals will be distributed September 8, 2016, and are due October 1, 2017. Contact Shaun Longstreet, Director of CTL, for further information.

The CTL offers bridge funding for research fellowships to faculty seeking to initiate or continue undergraduate research opportunity programs.
