Curriculum Development Grants (Wig Fund)
A number of grants, usually ranging from $500 to $2,500, are awarded by the Teaching & Learning Committee for the development or substantial revision of courses. These grants are meant to reimburse faculty for items such as books, videos and software (up to $500); student assistants (up to $1000); field trips (up to $800); travel (up to $850); and conference or workshop registration fees related to preparation of a course. Preference will be given to faculty who have not received Wig funds for course development in the preceding two years.
The deadline for applications is April 6, 2015. Applications should include a course description and a detailed, itemized budget. The applicant should also indicate if she or he has received a Wig grant in the past two years and, if so, the curricular results. Please submit proposals to Associate Dean Kristin Fossum. The Teaching & Learning Committee will review the proposals in April, and awardees will be notified immediately after the May Board of Trustees meetings. Awards will become effective June 1, 2015, and must be spent by June 1, 2016.
Anticipated total funds available for 2015-16: $29,000
