The faculty grants program provides funding to support activities of full-time faculty. There are three rounds each year, with deadlines on August 15 for fall semester activities, November 15 for spring semester activities, and April 1 for summer activities.
Proposals are funded up to $1,500 for professional development activities and conference presentations, and up to $2,500 for research and creative activities. Group grants and summer fellowships are no longer available from this program.
Professional Development includes workshops, conferences, and seminars that provide education related to your discipline, research, and/or teaching and learning. Conference Participation such as presentations, workshops, panels, and posters in which you are a presenter are supported by this program. The Research and Creative Activity category supports activities that contribute to your scholarly work at UTC.
To apply for a grant, complete the form. Note: There are drop-down menus in the form. If you do not have the most recent version of Microsoft Word (Word 2016), you may not be able to access the menus.
Submit to the Faculty Grants sharepoint site at: https://mocsutc0.sharepoint.com/sites/facultydevelopment. The evaluation rubric is found in the form.
Complete applications will be reviewed and rated by the Faculty Grants committee using the rubric found in the application form. Applications lower in total score, or lacking in a criterion, are less likely to be recommended.
Faculty with funded proposals are required to submit a final report describing project activities and expenditures. It is also expected that research and creative activities funded by this program will be presented at UTC's Annual Research Dialogues.
For questions about the grant program, please contact the Faculty Grants Committee Chair or the Assistant Provost of Teaching and Learning.
The Walker Center for Teaching and Learning (WCTL) has created a tutorial video to assist applicants with proposal writing and submission.
