Dean’s Academy Small Grants Program in Innovation and Educational Research: The purpose of the Dean’s Academy of Distinguished Teaching Scholars in Innovation and Educational Research Small Grants Program (Dean’s Academy Small Grant Program) is to stimulate research and innovation in dental education. This program will make small awards (up to $3,000 per project) from an overall project pool of $6,000 to faculty who submit a written proposal and budget for a project that strives to improve education through innovative and methodical approaches.
These projects may involve curriculum development, evaluation methods, faculty development, or use of technology. Projects demonstrating a direct, measurable, positive impact on health science education will be most competitive for the award.
A successful application will be based upon merit with the intention to be responsible to the needs of a given program. Collaboration between or among units or schools is strongly encouraged where possible.
