Mellon Curricular Innovation Grants

The Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education invites proposals for up to five grants of $25,000 each to support changes in the curriculum that will help undergraduates achieve departmental or program-level learning goals in the area of discipline-specific library research competencies.  Proposals are due March 3, 2008.

The Mellon Curricular Innovation Grants are funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation as an extension of the Mellon Library/Faculty Fellowship on Undergraduate Research.

The multi-year Mellon Initiative is aimed at encouraging and facilitating faculty collaboration with the Library and other campus partners to strengthen connections between undergraduate research, information literacy, and library collections, and to create scalable and sustainable models for curricular change.
