Classroom Mini-Grants

The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE) offers The Classroom Mini Grants program to support faculty teaching. 

We are accepting applications until Friday, November 16, 2018. 

A Classroom Mini Grant should be used for an activity directly related to a class you are teaching during the Spring 2019 semester. Anyone currently teaching at Emory is eligible, including tenure track faculty, lecturers, adjunct faculty, visiting faculty and graduate students. Preference will be given to teachers who have not received past grants and for new course offerings. Only one application per faculty member, per semester. Only one application per class (i.e co-teachers can’t both apply for the same class). The request can be up to $300.

This Fund supports 

  • Honoraria for guest presenters (non-Emory)
  • Food and travel expenses for off campus class visits
  • Classroom materials that may not be covered by regular departmental funds.


  • We do not fund the purchase of technological hardware (computers, voice recorders, iPads, etc.)
  • Applicants must either have their own Smartkey/Speedtype account or be connected to a department with a Smartkey/Speedtype account
  • Applicants must also participate in assessment of the program, which may include online evaluations or focus groups.

Funds will be transferred at the beginning of the new semester (early January 2019).
