Academic & Instructional Services - Grant Opportunities
Academic and Instructional Services (AIS) works collaboratively with departments, colleges, and other units on campus to develop, promote, and support effective academic and instructional services. AIS works across the USU system—serving and supporting faculty, staff, and students wherever they are located.
As a service unit, AIS provides support for a wide range of initiatives and programs. Under direction of the Executive Vice President and Provost, AIS provides the administration of four different grant opportunities for Utah State University faculty.
Regional Campus faculty* may apply for up to $10,000 to implement a high-quality teaching and learning project that applies innovative teaching strategies, maximizes student engagement, promotes collaborative learning, extends certification, and/or creates new methods of assessing learning outcomes.
New Regional Campus faculty* may apply during the first 18 months of their hire date for up to $10,000 to implement a project that engages at least one faculty mentor over the one-year grant period.
All USU faculty may apply for up to $5,000 to fund innovative projects that advance learning outcomes and new technologies relevant to distance education students.
These $6,000 grants would provide Utah State University departments the opportunity to upgrade the technology in departmental controlled classrooms.
Stipends ranging between $500-$3,000/course are available for faculty interested in using free and open digital resources to enhance existing undergraduate courses.
*USU Eastern Faculty are encouraged to contact their campus administrators for USU Eastern-Only Faculty grant opportunities.
