Curriculum Development Grant

The goal of the VPUE Curriculum Grant program is to support the development of new courses and the modification of existing courses that expand undergraduates’ opportunities for intellectual excitement and academic rigor. New courses that grow directly from faculty research and regular course updates are considered part of the regular work of the University faculty and are normally not eligible for support.

Successful projects completed recently include extensive reformulation of core courses for a major and development of innovative field studies research courses in earth sciences and engineering. The level of grant support typically ranges from $1,000 to $5,000 for modest curricular innovation, and up to $10,000 for a more substantial faculty project. Funds are provided on a one-time basis.

To apply, please review the Request for Proposals and email applications to Sharon Palmer.
