The goal of the Enriching Engineering Education Award is to enrich the academic experience of undergraduate engineering students. Proposals are sought across a wide range of issues related to undergraduate engineering education, including teaching and learning in its many facets.
Funding ranges up to $20,000 per proposal. Successful proposals will enrich the undergraduate experience by, for example, increasing active learning in the classroom, enriching faculty-student interactions, improving first-year academic experience, increasing retention or enhancing communication and other professional skills. Funding may be used for any reasonable cost associated with project ideas, except one involving a supplement to the instructorâ€™s academic year salary.
All faculty in the School of Engineering, including teaching faculty, are eligible to apply.
A committee of five faculty members from across the School of Engineering will review all proposals. Funds awarded will be for academic year 2016-2017.
Priority will be given to proposals that have the potential to be of long-term value and scalable to benefit many students in the School of Engineering.
Proposals are due by Friday, October 28, 2016.
