Deadline extended to Monday, April 10 at 11 p.m.!
Submit proposals using our new "easy to submit" process.
The reconstituted Transformational Education Committee, and affiliated subcommittees, have highlighted priorities to benefit our students. In order to help inspire new ways of thinking about these goals, we will be offering five to seven Student Success Mini-Grants of up to $2,000 for faculty engaging in any of the following:
- Fostering student engagement in first or second year courses
- Incorporating open source free (or low cost) textbooks in your courses
- Sustainability in Education
- Interdisciplinary and/or Service Learning projects
- Global Engagement
We want to hear from you!
We invite all full-time faculty at UMass Lowell to submit their teaching ideas which could benefit from small amounts of funding ($500 to $2000). At this stage, all we need are 200 words (or fewer) describing your idea; no budget is required for this round. If we think your idea is interesting and promising, we will ask you to present it more fully to representatives from the committee.
- By April 10, 2017 at 11 p.m., complete the form below including your 200 words (or fewer) description.
- By April 14, the committee will select proposals for the presentation round.
- During the period from April 19 – 28, 2017, we will ask you to present your idea more fully by making a 5-10 minute “pitch” which will include your budget. More details about the pitch will be provided if your initial idea is selected.
- Awards will be available for projects to be implemented during fall 2017 or spring 2018.
