Doyle Diversity Grants
Doyle diversity grants are another Doyle-funded opportunity available to faculty teaching undergraduate courses. The grants facilitate activities designed to engage students with issues of difference and diversity, in connection with a course. Doyle diversity grants are meant to fund projects which help students engage with diversity or gain a greater recognition of their own positionality vis-a-vis issues of plurality and social justice.
Who Is Eligible?
All full-time and part-time faculty are eligible to apply for Doyle diversity grants of up to $500.
What Are the Criteria?
Before applying, please review these criteria:
- These grants are primarily for activities that somehow merge the classroom experience with outside or co-curricular opportunities
- These grants are meant to fund projects which help students engage with diversity or gain a greater recognition of their own positionality vis-a-vis issues of plurality and social justice
- We are particularly interested in supporting innovative ideas and especially those that lend themselves to adoption in other courses
- We welcome applications for repeat funding, though please note that these grants are not meant as a perennial source of funding; repeat awards are more likely in the case of faculty securing sources for matching funds
- We award individual faculty members a maximum of $500 per year (not per course)
How Can I Apply?
To apply for a Doyle diversity grant, submit this online application. You will be asked to provide a brief description of the proposed activity or event, an account of how you think this activity or event will deepen the intellectual engagement of students enrolled in your class, and a budget indicating the total amount requested and how the money will be spent. If awarded a grant, you must agree to write a report detailing the students’ experience and assessing the overall merits of the project. Applications received by September 8, 2017 will receive first consideration for the Fall 2017 term.
If you are unsure whether a particular event or activity might be funded, feel free to contact Maggie Debelius (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
