While the “funding opportunities” posts here will tend to focus on external funding sources, this is a good time of year to remember the support available to you right here at GW. A few examples:
Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service: Course Development Grants
Funds available to support the development of service-learning and community-based research courses. Grantees attend workshops and have individual consultations to assist with course design, establishing partnerships with community organizations and other relevant issues. Final proposals to receive 2016/2017 funds are due at the end of January 2016, with decisions made in early February. Click here for more information.
University Teaching and Learning Center: Peer-Reviewed Explorations in Teaching (PRET)
The PRET program provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate rigorous, peer-reviewed contributions to excellent teaching. Obviously, at the Center we are enthusiastic about innovations connected to active community engagement (grin) but these grants are open to any proposal that would demonstrate a new approach to teaching and learning in your course. Applications are due in early December. Click here for more information.
Office of Diversity and Inclusion: Innovation in Diversity and Inclusion Grant
These grants support activities that “use the lens of diversity and inclusion to advance GW’s academic, education, research, and service mission.” The next opportunity to submit a proposal is October 15, 2015. Click here for more information.
Center for Career Services: Faculty and Staff Innovation Grants
Supported by the Shenkman Career Services Fund, these $2,000 grants support faculty who create professional and career development activities for undergraduate or graduate students.
