Brandeis Grants to Support Teaching
Grants to support innovation in teaching are funded by the Provost’s Office and administered through the CTL. These grants are intended to promote excellence in teaching through the development of innovative instructional methods, new methods of assessing teaching and learning, or the redesign of courses and curricula, by means of evidence-based practices. While each call for proposals suggests a particular focus, all proposals that address innovation in teaching, learning and assessment are considered. External Grants to support teaching may also be worth considering.
Teaching community engaged courses requires extensive preparation, communication and coordination with community partners, and logistics. COMPACT offers two grants to support faculty, staff, and postdocs from any discipline in effectively developing community engaged courses and/or adding community engaged research and creative projects to their pre-existing classes.
The Vic ’63 and Bobbi Samuels ’63 Center for Community Partnerships and Civic Transformation (COMPACT) offers two grants to support faculty, staff, and postdocs from any discipline in developing community engaged courses and/or adding community engaged research and creative projects to their pre-existing classes.
The grants provide funding for instructors to devote their time to redesign a pre-existing course or design a new course that meaningfully uses a community engaged mode of learning. COMPACT Pedagogy Project Grants provide support for community engaged research or creative projects that will be conducted in a Brandeis course.
Please send any questions about these opportunities to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mandel Center for the Humanities supports a number of programs and grants for faculty and graduate students, including writing retreats, research projects, dissertation innovation grants, and publicly engaged projects in the humanities, the arts and the humanistic social sciences. These include projects that have audiences beyond the academy, projects in the experimental or digital humanities, applied humanities work, and/or collaborative projects that create and sustain mutually beneficial partnerships with community organizations, museums, libraries or other cultural spaces or media.
The Connected PhD is an initiative supported by the Mellon Foundation that seeks to enrich professional development opportunities for doctoral students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences at Brandeis. This four-year program will fund professional development grants for students and curricular innovation grants for faculty.
