Course Enhancement Grants Application

To support faculty members and staff involved in academic programs who wish to take advantage of an opportunity to add a co-curricular or curricular element to their course which would bring added cost (for example, attending a show or hearing a lecture). Funds can be used for tickets or transportation or similar items. The fund is open to support of any course, including First Year Seminars. This fund is not intended to support large or significant trips, e.g. similar to those funded by the SSIR program. This fund will support items justified as contributing significantly to the academic impact and student learning in a course, but which are not supported by the Dupont Fund or by the faculty member’s own school or department.

Questions should be directed to the Associate Provost for Student Academic Initiatives, Scott Johnson.

Call for Proposals

Applications are invited for Course Enhancement Grants as follows:

  • Applications for funding to be used in the spring semester should be submitted by November 1.
  • Applications for funding to be used in the fall semester should be submitted by March 1. Requests for exceptions to these deadlines will be considered on a case-by-case basis and should be addressed to the Associate Provost for Student Academic Initiatives, Scott Johnson.

Criteria for review include relevance to course/student-learning goals, affordability, and appropriateness for the fund (i.e., not suitable for support through Dupont, SSIR, Cultural Affairs, Advising, or other funding sources).

Notes: This is a limited resource, so all requests may not be funded each year. To avoid a few specific courses/events dominating fund distribution, preference will be given to new requests over repeat requests, and to meeting multiple smaller requests rather than funding one or two large ones.
