The purpose of the proposed funding should be to increase teaching effectiveness through the use of technology or other tools, to support specific projects of scholarly or experiential merit for students or, to benefit scholarship or other forms of student accomplishment.
Funds awarded should provide a mechanism for new and/or improved approaches to teaching, scholarship and student achievement and may include athletics, vocational training and the arts. However, the funding is not intended to cover core items that should fall within the regular school budget (e.g. textbooks, calculators). Proposals may be submitted, in electronic form (Word or PDF), to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 15, 2016. Selections will be announced at the June faculty meeting
