- Innovative projects that are designed to enhance student learning, promote student success, and further innovation in teaching and learning.
- Projects on a one-time, one-year basis.
- Ideas and projects at the appropriate stage of development.
Qualifying proposals will range from formative ideas that explore learning concepts to fully tested models ready to be adopted and disseminated.
Who can Apply for Learning Grants?
- Faculty (residential, adjunct, and one-year-only) are eligible to apply.
- Adjunct faculty and one-year-only faculty should team up with a residential faculty member or department/division chair to provide an on-campus contact for the grant. Inclusion on a learning grant application does not guarantee future employment with Maricopa.
- Faculty may be compensated through special services assignments throughout the duration of the grant. Each college determines how to distribute the funds for faculty participating in the grant.
