Wabash Center Large Project Grants
Deadlines: March 1 and October 1
NB: Faculty are eligible to apply for these grants.
The Wabash Center provides funds for activities that enhance teaching and learning in the fields of religion and theology. It seeks to fund projects that promote a sustained conversation about pedagogy through the improvement of practical applications of teaching and learning methods, the encouragement of research and study of pedagogical issues, and the creation of a supportive environment for teaching.
The grant program is concerned primarily with building the capacity of institutions and faculties for sustained pedagogical conversations. It also serves to empower and encourage others to initiate relevant change within their home institutions. In addition, all applications are expected to reference specific classroom practices and challenges.
Small Project Grants for amounts up to $5,000 (previously the maximum was $2,500) have a short application process and can be approved anytime throughout the year. Rolling Deadline
Project Grants for amounts up to $30,000 require a full application process and are awarded at two different times during the year. Deadlines: March 1 and October 3
• March 1
• October 3
• Small Project Grants (up to $5,000) can be submitted at any time during the year.
Projects might involve meetings of scholars across schools, regions, denominations, or subject areas to think about syllabi, teaching strategies, student learning styles, or teaching as a vocation. Or they might involve a single department experimenting with creative ways to enhance teaching or a doctoral institution helping their students prepare for teaching careers. We encourage interested applicants to propose creative projects that will enhance their particular teaching and learning contexts.
