FDIC Partnership Grants
FDIC Partnership Grants are an annual funding opportunity aimed at helping EIU faculty develop projects partnering with faculty or staff within the university, in the community, or with faculty in other institutions of higher education. Successful proposals focus on creating opportunities through which faculty can explore a topic of mutual interest from different perspectives, develop creative/innovative interdisciplinary or integrative pedagogies, strengthen cross-disciplinary and inter-departmental collaborations in scholarship or teaching and learning, promote the integration or incorporation of diverse intellectual, social, and/or cultural perspectives into curricula, and/or develop integrative models of teaching and learning or the assessment of integrative teaching approaches.
Faculty Partnership Grants are designed to help EIU faculty develop projects partnering with faculty or staff within the university, in the community, or with faculty in other institutions of higher education. Proposals must form or further partnerships with faculty in different departments and/or colleges at EIU, with faculty at other institutions, with university staff, or with members of the community. Grants (up to $1,000) may be used as seed money in conjunction with other support. Successful grant applicants are required to provide a summary report with evidence of the event or project, an outline of project outcomes, and final budget detail at the end of the fiscal year (June 30th). Recipients may also be asked to prepare a workshop for the FDIC based on the partnership project. For full detail, see the most recent Guidelines and Application Form (AY 2023-2024).
Applications are due by October 15, 2023 (11:59 pm).
