Faculty Development: Internal Funding

Guide to Faculty Development Resources.

Internal Funding Reviewed by Faculty Development Committee

The Faculty Development Committee at Edgewood College oversees the distribution of funds for Mini-grants, Instructional Development Grants, Scholarship Development Grants, and Educational Programming Grants. The chair of the committee sends out a call for applications via email.

  • The call for Mini-Grant applications goes out four times a year. These grants are primarily for travel and other projects with costs that exceed departmental budgets. Eligibility information can be found in the Faculty Handbook.
  • Instructional Development and Scholarship Development Grant calls go out two times per year, at the beginning of each semester. These grants are intended for significant projects that fall outside of the normal expectations of a faculty member, and are often in the form of course release time. (Proposals for revising a course or developing a new course are considered normal workload, and typically are not funded.) For details, please see the Faculty Development Handbook, found in the quick links section of the Faculty Development homepage.
  • Education Programming Board Grant calls go out twice a year, at the beginning of each semester. These grants provide resources to host a campus-wide event that has broad support across two or more schools or departments, such as bringing a speaker or event to the Edgewood campus.
