Faculty Development and Indiana Connections (FDIC) Grants

To support the further integration of experiential education into the curriculum and promote service learning, volunteer, internship, and career opportunities within Indiana, faculty are invited to submit proposals for the Faculty Development and Indiana Connections Grants.

These competitive grants are for faculty to develop partnerships with Indiana employers, organizations, and agencies in an effort to develop meaningful, academically-based experiential learning opportunities that correlate with the Cross Currents initiatives allowing students to explore the answers to the four critical questions. 

These grants support supplemental training, professional development, course development, and collaborations with Indiana partners. They will also generate connections within the community that they can use to inform their teaching and advising.

Submissions for the 2013-2014 application period are due 5 p.m. on Monday, October 28, 2013.  Application and grant details are listed below.  For questions, e-mail ccpsmc@saintmarys.edu.  Faculty are encouraged to apply early before the October 28th deadline.  Faculty who apply early will have a decision within two (2) weeks.
