Graduate College
Graduate College Innovation Grants

Award:

The inaugural Graduate College Innovation Grant program seeks to create new opportunities in graduate education, and enhance the graduate student experience at UD. By encouraging development of new academic and co-curricular programs, as well as stronger support for students and their mentors, the Graduate College aims to increase the value we provide to graduate, professional, and post-doctoral trainees, and attract new students to our programs. Proposals are invited in two categories:

Program Development & Innovation
These grants will support development of new graduate and professional programs, or innovative graduate curricula, related to contemporary, high impact areas. Priority will be given to programs with the potential to attract new populations of students, and an interdisciplinary scope

Professional Development
These grants will support Professional Development activities designed for graduate students, post-docs, or faculty mentors. Priority will be given to programs that will reach a large number of students, or establish links to potential employers.

Proposals can be submitted by following the link below. We ask that you use the budget template provided on the application page. Budgets up to $40,000 will be considered, though smaller proposals are welcome. Departmental and/or external grant cost-sharing is encouraged. It is expected that most programs will be completed within a year, though proposals for longer duration programs are welcome.

Awards can be made as early as July 1. This call for proposals will be repeated in September for Fall/Spring awards. Interested parties may address questions to Doug Doren, Interim Vice Provost for Graduate and Professional Education and Dean of the Graduate College or Buz Swanik, Faculty Fellow in the Graduate College.

Funding for this initiative is provided by the Graduate College.
