Innovation Fellowship Request for Proposals

CiTE Fellowship Cover Sheet

Purpose
Innovation Fellowships enable teams of faculty and staff members to explore new and creative ways to develop collaborative projects that will promote and enhance the use of technology in teaching and curriculum development.
 
Fellowship Information  
Up to 5 proposals will be funded at $2000 per faculty or staff member ($4000 per team).

The Innovation Fellowship supports teams of two colleagues in researching, exploring, and developing new and creative ways to enhance the use of technology in teaching and curriculum development that meets a critical need on campus. For additional information and examples of past Innovation projects, see videos and the Innovation Fellows Gallery link below.

As an Innovation Fellow, you will research, explore and develop new and creative ways to enhance the use of technology in teaching and curriculum development.  Check out what last year's fellows said about their experience in the program:
