The Alex and Brit d’Arbeloff Fund for Excellence in Education is soliciting preliminary proposals for faculty-led projects to enhance the educational experience of MIT undergraduates, preferably in the General Institute Requirements (GIRs) or during their first year.
In the past two years, grants have ranged from $35,000 to $100,000, with the majority being $50,000 or less. Preliminary proposals (of 2-3 pages) are due by Thursday, Oct. 15, 2009. Those invited to submit a final proposal will be notified in early November; final proposals are due by Dec. 1.
Guidelines are available at http://web.mit.edu/darbeloff. Please contact the Office of Faculty Support at 617-253-6776 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
