Teaching Advancement Grants can be used to fund projects that support graduate teaching development. Grants are awarded up to $2500 to Stanford faculty, lecturers, instructional teams, graduate students involved in TA training, and departments.

Possible uses of a grant for TA training include:

  • supporting graduate students in co-planning courses (e.g., graduate stipend for a quarter prior to the class)
  • compiling or developing resources for TA training and support
  • funding pilot projects such as a new TA training or mentoring program
  • designing a graduate pedagogy course
  • funding graduate student salaries or stipends to assist with work related to the grant project
