Teaching Project Grants 2014/2015


The Teaching Project Grants program is designed to provide support for Penn State faculty, departments, and degree-granting programs who want to engage in projects that support teaching and learning endeavors in undergraduate education. Support for these projects includes consultations with the Institute, as well as funding.


For the 2014-15 funding cycle, we have a more robust pre-proposal process. This will save faculty time, increase funding rates, distribute funds more broadly across the university, and assure alignment with academic unit priorities.
