Available Now. Funds are available now for faculty projects that attempt to integrate technology effectively into teaching, learning, research, or scholarship. Grants up to $500.00 are standard, but in exceptional cases, grants up to $2000.00 may be available. Grants are intended to support a variety of requests, and faculty are encouraged to apply if they believe their project is within the scope of this application.

Guidelines. In assessing applications, the selection committee will give special consideration to the potential for wider adoption by SMC faculty, the innovative and effective use of technology, and the potential for student-faculty collaboration. Applications that propose the formation of a "user group" or collective effort are strongly encouraged, and preference will be given to applications that stress community benefit.

Deadline. Grant applications may be submitted at any time up to May 01, 2016. Grants received by the 15th will be reviewed by the end of the same month. Faculty members who receive grants should be willing to discuss the funded technology in an ETG-sponsored campus discussion and short video interview.

Activity Report. Grantees are required to submit an activity report that will be made available online at the ETG website. The activity report should briefly describe how the technology was applied to their teaching and/or scholarship and 1) describe the specific learning outcomes or research goals that were enhanced through the use of the technology or 2) include a product of the activity.
