Mini-Grants

CETLOE mini-grants support new teaching projects or allow faculty to expand on current projects. Applicants must demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching. Projects should fall into one of three tracks:

  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
  • General Pedagogy and Teaching Practices
  • College to Careers

Awards are up to $3,500 and can be used for summer support, travel, research supplies, and/or a GRA/GTA line. Faculty who apply, submit:

  • A curriculum vitae
  • Online application. The application consists of three parts:
    1. Brief description of the proposed project and goals (500-600 words max). Include if your project will need IRB support.
    2. How will these funds facilitate the implementation or facilitation of the proposed work? What are your plans to disseminate or share your findings within your department, college, the university or national/international academic community?
    3. How do you propose to use the funds (GRA support, summer support*, supplies, travel etc.) Funds will be transferred to the awardee’s home department after July 1, 2021 and must be spent by June 30, 2022.

*Please note: depending on when the funds are released they might not be available for summer 2021 support. You can request summer 2022 support.

Applications are submitted through the application portal.

Direct questions to Laura Carruth (CETLOE Director) at lcarruth@gsu.edu.
