Course Materials Development Grant

COURSE MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT GRANT

PURPOSE AND SCOPE:

To fund acquisition of specialized, permanent teaching materials for new courses or significant upgrades of existing courses. Applicants must demonstrate that these materials are essential to a course's instruction and that the proposed course represents a significant contribution to the College's curriculum. The maximum grant amount is $1,500.

Additional guidelines: Applications must be accompanied by a Chair's endorsement which specifically indicates that the materials represent too much of a burden on the department's budget. Departments must make a good faith effort to defray a portion of the costs of the new materials.

Note: This grant is intended as an alternative to the Curriculum Development Grant, which does not fund materials for course development.

PERSONS ELIGIBLE:

Full-time members of the teaching faculty of the College

APPLY TO: Faculty Development Committee

APPLICATION DEADLINE: February 1

A written report must be submitted to FDC within the first six weeks of the regular semester following use of funds.
