The College of ACES Teaching Enhancement Grant Programs

Teaching Enhancement Grant Programs

The goal of the ACES Teaching Enhancement Grant Programs is to encourage the improvement courses and related instructional activities offered by the College of ACES.

In 2018, proposals are solicited in three areas:

  1. Course Enhancement: These awards will support enhancements to current ACES courses.
  2. Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: These awards will support research projects being conducted within ACES courses by ACES faculty.
  3. Aryls Conrad International Teaching Enhancement: These awards will support projects that integrate international content and education abroad experiences into new and existing curricula in the College of ACES.

These programs are funded by various gifts to the College including the Karl E. Gardner Endowment which was established by a gift from George R. and Arthur H. Bunn, the Sleeter and Lucille Simmons Bull Endowment which was established by gifts from Professor Bull’s family, the Karl R. Natho Endowment which was established by gifts from his daughters, and the Aryls Conrad endowment to support international programs in ACES.

The ACES Teaching Enhancement Grant Program is administered by the ACES Office of Academic Programs. Applications can be submitted online here.



Proposal Due Date: November 18, 2018

Announcement of Awards: December 7, 2018

Funds will be dispersed as reimbursements after a final report has been submitted.
