Innovative Teaching Grant

GSE has established an “Innovative Teaching Grant” to encourage faculty to plan and implement broad and creative solutions to persistent educational issues and dilemmas. The goal is to encourage faculty to propose innovative pedagogical approaches that produce new ways of thinking about teaching praxis and build greater teaching capacity in particular programs. While these can include approaches that employ technology, they are not limited to them. This grant will support efforts to investigate and address key pedagogical questions and to bring the fruits of that investigation back into GSE classrooms for improved learning and career readiness.

Award Amount

A total budget of $20,000 annually is available to support up to two projects for no more than $10,000/project for one year.


All full-time faculty in GSE (tenured, tenure-track, and clinical) may apply. We encourage teams of faculty from more than one GSE program and department to apply.
