Proposals sought for CFDE mini-grants

Emory Report | Jan. 9, 2014

Grants of up to $300 are available to support an activity directly related to a class being taught at Emory during the spring 2014 semester. The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17.

Anyone currently teaching at Emory — including graduate students, adjunct or visiting faculty, lecturers, or tenure track faculty — is eligible to apply, with preference given to new course offerings and educators who have not received past mini-grants.

Mini-grants may be used to fund areas such as classroom materials not covered by regular departmental funds, honoraria for non-Emory guest presenters, and food and travel expenses to support off-campus class visits.

However, the funds may not be used to support either the purchase of technological hardware — including computers, recorders or iPads — or honoraria and payments to Emory faculty and employees.

One application may be submitted by individual faculty members each semester. Applicants must either have their own Smartkey account or be connected to a department with a Smartkey account.
