Grants Programs


Mini-grants should be used for an activity directly related to a class you are teaching. Examples of what the mini-grants can support include the following:

(1) honoraria for guest presenters,

(2) food and travel expenses for off-campus class visits (e.g., travel to an exhibit, performance, or site), and

(3) classroom materials that may not be covered by regular departmental funds.

All University faculty are eligible to apply.  Preference will be given to those who have not received past mini-grant support.  Repeat requests for previously funded activities are unlikely to be supported.  

The deadline for applications is rolling.  Only one application per faculty member per semester. The request can be up to $500.

For additional questions, please contact one of the directors, Professor Betsy Sandlin or Professor Jordan Troisi
