Teaching Innovation Grants (Wig Fund)
Small grants (up to $600) are available throughout the year to enhance the teaching of a particular course. This fund is meant to cover curricular needs that are unexpected and that therefore cannot be met within a departmental budget or through application for a Curriculum Development Grant. Items that have been funded in the past include books, honoraria/meals/lodging for in-class speakers, videos, computer software, and student assistants.
Requests are to be made in writing (email or paper), with a complete budget, including other sources of funding if any, and a short description of the relevance of the items to a particular course. Please submit requests to Kristin Fossum, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
Total funds available 2012-13: $7,500
