The Center for Teaching and 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)
To better support faculty / full-time instructors interested in pursuing research in educational development, curriculum design, and the scholarship of teaching and learning, the CTL will help offset the costs of attending conferences related specifically to the advancement of teaching and learning. To qualify, recipients must be on the conference program and should be willing to share their work with Marquette peers. Funding may be used for conference fees or travel expenses. This grant has a rolling application, and 1-page proposals, with justification for funding, may be sent to the Director of the CTL, email@example.com.
Community Based Learning Seed Grants, "Problem-Solver Grant"
(4 grants per semester are available, up to $500 each)
Since 2013, faculty have been using community engagement seed grants towards applied learning opportunities for students who are doing community engaged learning. These seed grants must be used for supplies, site travel funds, and miscellaneous expenses, and cannot be used for faculty or student stipends. The Seed Grant has a rolling application and the proposal form may be found on the CTL website. Seed grants may be renewed once. Inquiries can be sent to Kim Jensen Bohat, Director, Service Learning Program at the Center for Teaching & Learning. Applications are continually accepted.
(NEW this Spring!) !) Service Learning / Community-Engaged Learning Institute
( Faculty stipends of $1,000 upon completion of the Institute)
This faculty-centered institute is a space for those who are currently use, or would like to introduce, community engaged learning (i.e. service-learning) as part of their course. The program meets weekly for approximately 8 weeks. This institute highlights evidenced-based best practices for insuring that students can make strong connections with course material and their placement with community partner co-educators. Participants will design, or redesign community engaged learning activities while participating in the institute and submit a syllabus at the end of the semester of participation.
Development Stipends for Online Courses
up to $3,000 per faculty, plus 40 hours of instructional development assistance)
For approximately ten years, The CTL has supported faculty to develop high-quality online courses in D2L through our Online Course Design Program. The OCDP insures a high level of student active learning online as well as several other quality-assurance standards, including those pointing towards universal design/accessibility. 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, 2015, and are due October 1, 2016. Contact Heidi Schweizer, Director of eLearning, for further information.
Undergraduate Research Funding
(per funding availability – up to $10,000 for summer 2016 undergraduate research opportunities. Funds are for supporting undergraduates for 8 weeks of research work with faculty over the summer.)
The CTL offers bridge funding for research fellowships to faculty seeking to initiate or continue undergraduate research opportunity programs. Most notably, the program is designed to mirror the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). Preference for funding will be given to Principal Investigators who can best secure matching department and/or college funding.
