  • Brown Instructional Technology (BIT) Grants
    The BIT Grants Program is an opportunity for faculty and graduate instructors to have digital projects created for their courses. Project proposals should state specific pedagogical goals and explain how the use of technology might enhance the teaching and learning experience. Projects will be developed by the Students Technology Assistant (STA) Program, and coordinated by the Instructional Technology Group in collaboration with the instructor(s) and any graduate or undergraduate student researchers. Work will take place during the summer and could extend to the following academic year.

  • Faculty Initiatives Seed Fund
    International Affairs will offer seed grants to encourage and support advanced research in collaboration with global peers, and to foster robust institutional partnerships at the international level. We will also consider proposals of support for on-campus events which contribute to Brown’s internationalization mission. Proposals should demonstrate that the project or event is part of a larger, ongoing initiative with potential for further funding or a lasting impact at the University. Faculty, departments or other units applying for these grants should submit a project proposal and budget to Shelley Stephenson, Director of Programs, Office of International Affairs at Shelley_Stephenson@brown.edu.

    Grants of $50,000 are available to fund seed projects that focus on the field of global health research.
