Requests for Proposals

Curriculum Enhancement Grant Proposals Due January 18, 2013

Due By: Friday, January 18, 2013

The Curriculum Enhancement Grant (CEG) initiative is designed to provide faculty with support, time, and resources to implement projects designed to improve student learning and success at IUPUI and IUPU Columbus. In addition, it is expected that the grants will increase faculty competitiveness for external educational or curricular improvement grants and increase the number of faculty involved in pursuing the scholarship of teaching and learning. Individual faculty members can apply for up to $5,000. Teams of three or more faculty working on three or more courses can apply for a maximum of $15,000 per proposal. The grants are open to IUPUI and IUPU Columbus full-time faculty. See the 2013 Curriculum Enhancement Grant (CEG) Guidelines and Application for more information.  The deadline for proposal submissions is  Friday, January 18, 2013.
