SoTL Fellowships and Grants
The following are fellowships and grants from external sources that support course development and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
National Endowment for the Humanities due September 15
"The Enduring Questions grant program supports a faculty member's development of a new course that will foster intellectual community through the study of an enduring question. This course will encourage undergraduate students and a teacher to grapple with a fundamental question addressed by the humanities, and to join together in a deep and sustained program of reading in order to encounter influential thinkers over the centuries and into the present day."
Teaching Development Fellowship
National Endowment for the Humanities due October 1
"Teaching Development Fellowships (TDF) support college and university teachers pursuing research aimed specifically at improving their undergraduate teaching. The program has three broad goals: 1) to improve the quality of humanities education in the United States; 2) to strengthen the link between research and teaching in the humanities; and 3) to foster excellence in undergraduate instruction."
