Faculty Innovation Grants (FIG)

Faculty Innovation Grants (FIG) are devoted to the creation or application of learning objects, resources or innovative approaches by faculty members, with the support of the TLT Center, to infuse technology in courses scheduled to be taught at Seton Hall no later than one academic year after receiving the grant. 

Faculty Innovation Grants are sponsored by the Teaching, Learning and Technology Center, together with the Faculty Senate IT Committee and the Digital Humanities Committee and are offered when funds are made available. The faculty will be notified when these grants are available with a Request for Proposals (RPF).

Faculty interested in pursuing a FIG must submit a proposal using the FIG Submission Form. The applications will be reviewed and recommendations for funding will be made to the TLT Center by a faculty committee.
