Faculty Mini-Grants

The BSU Faculty Mini-Grant Program is sponsored by the Office of the President to support faculty initiatives, such as new teaching pedagogies and curriculum innovations; research and other scholarly and creative endeavors; and community collaborations.

During the 2018-2019 academic year, $10,000 was available for faculty mini-grants in the following categories:

  • Projects that positively affect student retention, particularly for students of color and American Indian students as we seek to reduce the achievement gap.
  • Projects that create or enhance international/multicultural understanding, civic engagement, and environmental stewardship.
  • Faculty/student collaborative projects in teaching, research, or service learning.
  • Collaborative projects across departments submitted by faculty from different disciplines
  • Proposals that have a significant impact on students, the curriculum, or the community.
