Deadline approaches for fall CFDE grants

Emory Report | April 27, 2015

The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE) has issued a call for proposals for two of its teaching grants for the Fall 2015 semester. Applications for each are due Friday, May 8.

Fund for Innovative Teaching (FIT) grants are intended to support innovative undergraduate and/or graduate and postgraduate teaching at Emory. These grants are open to all full-time faculty (both tenure and non-tenure track) and are available for both individual faculty members and faculty working as teams.

Priority will be given to those whose proposals promise long-term educational effects within the Emory community. Grants are available in the amounts of $500-$3,000. Interested faculty should apply online.

Classroom Mini Grants should be used for an activity directly related to a class that will be taught during the Fall 2015 semester. Anyone currently teaching at Emory is eligible, including graduate students, adjunct faculty, visiting faculty, lecturers or tenure track faculty.

Preference will be given to teachers who have not received past grants and for new course offerings, and grants are available up to $300. Apply online.

For both grants, applicants must either have their own Smartkey account or be connected to a department with a Smartkey account.

For more information on CFDE grants, including application materials, judgment criteria, and requirements, please see cfde.emory.edu. Grants are contingent on CFDE budget approval from the Provost's Office and are not guaranteed.
