Innovation Grant Program

Stanford Building

The Innovation Grants Program is currently not accepting applications.

In light of VPTL’s new mission and leadership, the innovation grant program is on hold while VPTL begins work with a recently established Faculty Advisory Board and other campus stakeholders. Teaching advancement grants will continue to be issued according to criteria that meet the goals of our mission and we would be glad to consult with you and discuss new ideas! Please contact us directly or use this short form to schedule a consultation:

Program Description

The Innovation Grant Program provides financial support and project assistance drawn from the whole of VPTL, which includes the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD). All awardees are strongly encouraged to participate in Faculty College, which will provide quarterly opportunities to interact with and learn from other grant participants. Participation in Faculty College can be a beneficial experience to all applicants, regardless of whether they are working on individual projects or team efforts.

In addition to financial support, VPTL offers integrated assistance, consultation, and technology resources to support grant projects. Applicants are encouraged to consider how VPTL services and support partnerships can be utilized to enhance their efforts. These collaborations may result in new pedagogical approaches, structural changes in curricula and degree programs, research-driven advances in student engagement, thoughtful integration of learning technologies, and other outcomes that enhance and improve students’ learning experiences at Stanford and beyond.
