The Faculty Development Teaching Grant program has been restructured for Fall 2020:

Grant awards are limited to a maximum $500. The total funding available is $8,000. The purchase of teaching materials, technology tools/apps, or other supplies needed to support teaching, face-to-face or online, will be considered.


  • Only UM-Flint faculty who did not receive funding through the 2020 CARES Micro-Grant Program are eligible to apply.
  • Faculty must have an active teaching appointment for Fall 2020 and/or Winter 2021.
  • Applications must be supported by the applicant's chair/program director.
  • Applicants must not have received funding/reimbursement through another sources for items listed in the application.

Applications will be accepted through Friday, October 16, 2020 and must be submitted via InfoReady.

A complete overview of the funding and restrictions is available here.

If the university removes/lessens restrictions for spending/travel, the TCLT may issue a second grant opportunity to support faculty development and pedagogical initiatives - this second round would follow the guidelines typical for the program as it has operated in the past. Please see the 2019 call for applications for reference.
