Faculty Classroom Enhancement Grants

Faculty in the social sciences may apply for grants throughout the academic year for research-based activities or invited classroom guests that support efforts to enrich the teaching experience.

Grant activities include

  • Inviting a guest lecturer from outside Dartmouth to a class
  • Going on a research-related field trip
  • Engaging in other activities that support the curriculum or classroom experience

Classroom Enhancement Grants should not be used to supplement travel or other expenses related to academic conferences on campus. If a visiting faculty member is on campus for such a conference, Classroom Enhancement Grants may be used for an additional night's stay in Hanover in order to meet with students in classes.

For more information, contact the Curricular & Research Office at (603) 646-2229, or Laura Mitchell, program officer for Classroom Enhancement Grants.
