Main Scheme: Project Awards (funded)
These awards provide funding for proposals to support the development of educational projects within the Division, and can be made to individuals or teams.
This financial award can be used by the proposers of projects in a variety of ways, such as for ‘buy-outs’, administrative or research support to underpin the project, materials or software. The award sum is yet to be agreed, but previous awards have been in the region of £1,500-£3,000. Funds associated with Project Awards are usually paid to a Department or College. In some cases, the award sum has been matched by the recipient’s Department or College.
Projects in all areas are welcome however the Division is seeking to encourage, in particular, project proposals under the following themes:
- research / transferable skills training initiatives and cohort-building activities for Postgraduate Research students
- development and application of learning technologies to support the delivery of teaching / to enhance students’ learning experience (whether for undergraduate, graduate taught or graduate research provision)
- delivering assessment
These awards are open to Collegiate University staff, whether or not they are, or have previously been, a recipient of an award(s) in another category or categories.
How to Apply
- Individuals and teams can apply using the Project Award application form.
- Please note that if undertaking a project requires departmental or college support (such as materials or other resources, or agreement to some buy-out from duties) the proposal must include written agreement from the relevant person(s).
