As members of the Associated Colleges of the South, Spelman faculty are eligible to apply for small grants to
explore new possibilities, expanding their background and skills, and to take advantage of opportunities not otherwise made available on the campuses and for which other funds are not available.
Grants are available in three themes: Innovative Instruction, Collaborative Curricula, and Diversity and Inclusion.
Innovative Instruction awards range from $15,000-$25,000; Collaborative Curricula projects from $25,000-$50,000; and Diversity and Inclusion project awards range from $15,000-$50,000. OSP can assist grant-seekers in identifying collaborators at other ACS institutions.
There are two funding cycles faculty can participate in:
Faculty are required to submit a pre-proposal to be invited to submit a full proposal. Pre-proposals must be in Microsoft Word format and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here for pre-proposal form.
Internal clearance is not required for pre-proposals. However, faculty are asked to copy OSP when submitting their pre-proposals to ACS.
