Development grants up to $50,000 are available to campuses for program development. The purpose of this grant category is to support the development of new programs and pathways and/or the modification of existing program/pathways that expand student opportunities.

NOTE: New courses that grow directly from faculty research and regular course updates are considered part of the regular work of the University faculty and are normally not eligible for support.

The deadline for submission is Wednesday, January 31, 2018.  

Nominations received on or before the deadline will be reviewed by the 2017-18 Innovation Grant Program Committee. Completed applications are submitted through the online InfoReady system.
