The Office of Faculty Development invites applications for Partnership Grants, which are designed to help EIU faculty develop interdisciplinary projects within the university, partnerships with the community, or with faculty beyond the campus. Successful grants ($250-$750) will address goals of fostering collegiality between departments, forming partnerships beyond the university, and/or reaching a broad audience. Full description, application form, and two previously successful proposals are available here. The turnaround for this year's Partnership Grant applications is brief: applications are due 4 p.m. Friday, March 24. We will contact successful applicants within two weeks, and grants must be spent by the end of this fiscal year (end of June). For more information, please contact the Faculty Development office at 581-7051 or
