What are Undergraduate Teaching Grants?
The Faculty Innovation Center is pleased to offer seven undergraduate teaching grants for courses in the upcoming academic year (Fall 2019 or Spring 2020). FIC Undergraduate Teaching Grants are awards of up to $5000 that provide faculty with summer stipends or funds for personnel, equipment, or software to build courses that include undergraduate collaborative learning in the classroom modelled on best teamwork practices used in the workplace.
Congratulations to those who were recently selected for awards!
