The Office of the Provost’s Ignite Grants support fresh approaches to curriculum and program development that make an impactful contribution to UP’s teaching and learning future. Ignite Grants, up to $5,000, are designed to encourage faculty to explore new ideas that have the potential to reshape the classroom experience and that tie curriculum to real-world experiences in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Proposals should complement the current strategic plan and support individual school strategies and priorities. Ideas are encouraged from all corners of campus.
The next request for proposals will open on September 16, 2019. Details about the process and requirements can be viewed at this link. The deadline for proposals is January 20, 2020. Grants will be awarded in early April, 2020. New for this year are two initiative tracts: 1) Faculty Innovation and 2) Instructional Technology.
If you’ve got an idea that might be a good fit for Ignite funding, please contact the Ignite team at firstname.lastname@example.org to explore the possibilities.
