Faculty Development Mini-Grant Program

The Transform Mid-Atlantic Faculty Development Mini-Grant program supports development of member faculty in order to enhance student learning and engagement.


Full or PT faculty from Transform Mid-Atlantic member institutions, cross-disciplinary teams, or collaborative teams of faculty from two or more institutions may apply for up to $2,000 to support a program consistent with the goals of the mini-grant program and Transform Mid-Atlantic's mission. While requests from individual faculty to inaugurate an innovative partnership or initiative may be considered, preference will be given to teams initiating faculty development, including inter-institutional teams and inter-disciplinary teams.

Fund Uses

These grant funds support faculty development opportunities like workshops and institutes that ultimately support students’ community-engaged learning.

These grant funds can support requests from individual institutions or collaborations between and among multiple educational institutions.

A couple of projects that have been funded in the past are:

    • Supporting an Annual Regional Conference on Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship
    • A cohort-based dialogue program that offered space for community members of diverse backgrounds to engage in dialogue on topics related to social identity
    • Developing an institution's internal research capacity by funding webinars and collaborative workshops designed to support faculty and staff in translating and mobilizing their research and expertise


Application Process

Applications have closed this year and will be open again at the beginning of next academic year.
