Instructional Improvement Grants
Travel Awards Program
Faculty Travel Awards of up to $1,000 are available to support faculty participation in off-campus workshops or seminars on pedagogy, or conferences/conference sessions directly related to teaching. Professional staff who are directly involved with student instruction and graduate students who are instructors of record for a course are also eligible to apply.
The purpose of participation must be directly related to improving instruction on the University of Delaware campus. Additionally, the award is intended to focus on changing or improving how instructors teach and not on enhancing their knowledge of the disciplinary content areas for courses or curricula. New faculty members (in their first 6 years of a teaching appointment at UD) are eligible for this support whether or not they are presenting a paper or are otherwise “on the conference program.”
