Overview of Grant Programs

VPTL Grants and Programs

Take advantage of the VPTL grants and programs designed for Stanford faculty and instructional teams to explore new directions for course, curriculum, and digital technology development and support priorities expressed by departments, programs, centers and schools.

Innovation Grant Program

The Innovation Grant Program supports and advances the priorities of schools and departments by giving Stanford faculty and instructional teams the opportunity to explore new directions in course development and innovative ways to engage and support students. Applicants are encouraged to think broadly and creatively about projects that reimagine and explore what is possible in teaching and learning at Stanford and beyond. Innovation in teaching and learning comes in many forms and may include experimenting with entirely new pedagogies and technologies or iteratively improving current practices and/or applying existing methods in new contexts. The program features three levels of investment in pedagogical innovation to more effectively serve Stanford’s evolving teaching and learning needs and VPTL’s mission:

  • Teaching Advancement Grants: Modest one-time grants that support the exploration of and experimentation with new or improved pedagogical approaches in current courses and educational programs for Stanford students. Reviewed quarterly.

iPads for Learning

The iPads for Learning program investigates the use of iPads can potentially impact teaching, learning, and research when applied in the service of specific goals. Each quarter the program committee supports a select number of Stanford faculty and instructor proposals that demonstrate the potential to make a contribution to Stanford's understanding of using iPads to support teaching, learning, and research.
