VPTL Innovation Grants


The Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL) offers grants to Stanford faculty and instructional teams for course, curriculum, and digital technology development to explore new directions and support priorities expressed by departments, programs, centers and schools.

The 2017 Call for Proposals is now closed. Please check back late Fall for information on the 2018 round. Congratulations to our 2017 Innovation Grant recipients.

The VPTL Innovation Grant Program provides financial support and project assistance drawn from the entire VPTL office, which now includes the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD). Funding decisions are based on the priorities expressed in the grant program description below (see Grant Criteria) and such criteria as: (i) an innovative experimental contribution to Stanford’s future, (ii) importance to current programs as expressed by the department chair and dean, or (iii) broader impact consistent with Stanford’s mission and values.
