Small grants up to $500 from CRLT’s Instructional Development Fund support innovative activities to improve teaching and learning at the University of Michigan.
The competition is open year-round, on the Ann Arbor campus of the University, to all tenured and tenure-track faculty; clinical instructional faculty; and Lecturers who have continuing appointments and course development responsibilities (i.e., an assignment from the dean, chair, or designee to develop a new course or significantly revise an existing course).
To ensure that a variety of applicants have the opportunity to implement innovative teaching and learning activities, recipients of IDF grants during an academic calendar year (Sept-August) will not be eligible to receive funding for an IDF grant during the next academic calendar year, but they are welcome to apply again in the following year.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, applications will be accepted at any time of the year until funds are exhausted. Approximately 20 projects are funded yearly, depending on the amounts requested.
All applications are handled electronically. Read more »
