Hrabowski Fund for Academic Innovation Competition Accepting Proposals (Deadline: Oct. 5)

Do you have a fresh idea on how to enhance teaching and learning at UMBC? The Hrabowski Fund for Academic Innovation Competition is accepting proposals for creative, new initiatives that will increase the success of our undergraduate and graduate students.

Approximately $100,000 will be available for the 2013-14 competition to fund curriculum development, course redesigns and other projects designed to improve or understand student-learning outcomes at UMBC. The competition is open to all faculty, lecturers and instructors with full-time appointments and proposals for funding may be made by individuals or collaborative groups.

Applications will be reviewed twice annually. For the inaugural competition, proposal deadlines are October 5, 2012 and February 8, 2013. The Faculty Development Center (FDC) is available to work with faculty as they develop project ideas.
