CETL mini-grants encourage experimentation with individual course enhancements that enrich instruction. For example, a faculty member could apply to receive funds that cover:
- The cost of an individual software license currently not available to you
- The cost of a piece of hardware currently not available to you
- Small-scale projects that create new curricula, materials, or activities for TCNJ students
- Partial travel costs to a conference related to teaching and learning
All faculty members and librarians who are full time (tenured, tenure-track, visiting, clinical) are eligible.
Mini-grants are available in amounts ranging from $500-$1500. Note that there is a finite amount of funds available for the year ($6,500 total).
The first round of applications must be received by October 18, 2022 at midnight. If additional funds remain after the initial deadline, subsequent applications will be accepted until the total amount of funds available are distributed. Recipients are determined by the Teaching and Learning Council, a representative group of faculty and librarians. Initial applicants will be notified by November 3, 2022. Interested faculty should submit the following materials online:
- A brief applicant bio (200 words maximum)
- An abstract of your proposed project (100 words maximum)
- Proposal description (500 words maximum)
- Provide title of the proposed project
- Provide a brief project description that outlines the project plan, including a timeline
- Describe how your project will benefit TCNJ students
- Provide a brief description of how you will evaluate the impact of the project and measure outcomes.
- An itemized budget (cannot include compensation for time)
