The NSF IUSE:EHR Program invites proposals which address current challenges and opportunities facing undergraduate STEM education. In addition, proposals that anticipate new structure and functions of undergraduate learning and teaching are also encouraged to be submitted for consideration. The goal of the IUSE:EHR Program is to facilitate the provision of highly effective, evidence-based teaching and learning experiences for undergraduate students in STEM courses.
The American Council of Learned Societies has opened its applications system for the 2017 cycle. ACLS offers several fellowship opportunities for faculty in the humanities. The programs that are of greatest interest to Spelman faculty are the Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars and the ACLS Fellowships. Note that the Burkhardt requires some institutional commitment which must be cleared by the provost’s office. Also, this year ACLS is introducing the ACLS Project Development Grants specifically for faculty at teaching-intensive institutions. Faculty who submit promising proposals to the ACLS Fellowships but are not chosen for a fellowship may be awarded a grant of $5,000 to support their projects. The ACLS FAQs page will provide more information.
The deadline for the Burkhardt Residential and ACLS Fellowships is September 27, 2017 by 9:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time.
Proctor & Gamble is soliciting applications from colleges and universities for projects or programs that improve curriculum, promote leadership opportunities, create learning environments that are stimulating and innovative, and increase diversity in thought. The Higher Education Grant Program (HEGP) is a one-year grant program and awards range from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the scope of the project. HEGP will accept multiple awards from universities but caps the amount a university can receive for one year at $50,000. HEGP will only accept two applications per discipline (i.e. two applications from the Department of Chemistry).
The deadline to apply is September 30, 2017.
Proctor & Gamble has an online grant application system, which can be accessed here.
Please read the HEGP Flyer 2017 for more information.
Previous Spelman recipients of the HEGP award include Dr. Yassin Jeilani of Chemistry in 2015 and Dr. Shanina Sanders of Chemistry in 2016.
