Schreyer Institute Grants

We offer a portfolio of grant programs for Penn State instructors and academic units. Proposals that address issues of equity and inclusion in teaching and learning will receive priority.

Each grant includes a support from an Institute faculty consultant as well as funding.

Please visit the different grant pages for additional information about deadlines, funding amounts, and eligibility. If you have questions, please send them to us at

What we can fund

All expenditures must be related to our mission to advance teaching excellence in Penn State’s instructional community. Each grant program funds different items and activities. Purchases of durable items will belong to the unit, not the individual, at the end of the grant period.

What we cannot fund

The Schreyer Institute wants to provide all instructors with the opportunity to receive our grants. If you have have been awarded a Schreyer Institute grant of $2500 or more in the past 3 years, please wait to submit another proposal.

  • Raffle prizes, gift cards, incentives, or monetary awards for participants
  • Goods or services from international companies and vendors
  • Donations to organizations (e.g., in lieu of entrance fees)
