CFDE Classroom Mini Grants


The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence offers Mini Grants to support faculty teaching.

Earlier the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence offered MiniGrants to support faculty teaching with a deadline of October 7. This call has been reopened for teaching mini-grants for this semester with no deadline other than if the funds are used up. A Mini Grant should be used for an activity directly related to a class you are teaching during the Fall 2022 semester. The request can be up to $300. Likely early in December we will have a separate call for teaching mini-grants for Spring 2023 courses.

Anyone currently teaching at Emory is eligible, including tenure track faculty, lecturers, adjunct faculty, visiting faculty and graduate students. However, if you are teaching an Emory College course you should apply directly to ECAS at this link, and these are administered by ECAS rather than the CFDE. At Oxford College, the mini-grants are administered by the Oxford Center for Teaching and Scholarship (OCTS); a call for applications goes out via Eagle Post in early fall and early spring.  Everybody else, apply through this CFDE link.

This fund supports

  • Classroom materials that may not be covered by regular departmental funds
  • Software licenses that directly relate to your class
  • Honoraria for guest presenters (non-Emory)
Please note
  • Applicants must either have their own Smartkey/Speedtype account or be connected to a department with a Smartkey/Speedtype account which must be entered at the time of submission.
