Internal Grant Opportunity
Projects should either support what is unique and effective at WSU, or create new points of distinction for us as a community of learners. The most powerful proposals will be those that find the intersections between and among areas of interests. Collaborative, cross-unit/department/college, and/or cross-disciplinary projects are encouraged.
Funds may be used for resource materials, summer duty days, student stipends, Special Initiative Awards (SIA) (available to only Administrative Service Faculty (ASF) members as per collective bargaining agreement), staff support, or other relevant expenses. Funds for salaries and stipends will not be released until the final reports are submitted and approved.
Applicants are encouraged to contact various offices for assistance and advice in preparing applications, such as the Community Liaison office; Educational Improvement and Leadership; Grants & Sponsored Projects; Teaching, Learning & Technology Services (TLT); Institutional Planning, Assessment & Research (IPAR); Grants and Sponsored Projects (G&SP), and the Statistical Consulting Center.
Awardees’ final reports are due Monday, June 28, 2013. All reports are to be submitted to Kenneth Janz, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Chief Information Officer (CIO), firstname.lastname@example.org. The final reports will include a narrative and financial report. The narrative in the final report should provide a substantive record of the accomplishments of the project including:
The final reports will be published on the HLC Next Chapter website.
All proposals must address each of the following criteria. If any criterion is missing, the proposal will not be considered. Point values shown will be used during the evaluation of the proposal.
Proposals will be reviewed by a sub-committee of the HLC that will invite/include representatives of constituency groups and members of the local community. Because of contractual requirements, proposals including ASF applicants who are requesting SIA awards will also be reviewed by the Special Initiative Award Committee. (See Regulation WSU 3-36.)
