The Tufts Innovates Seed Grant Program seeks to spark imaginative ideas to enhance learning and teaching, including approaches that integrate research and are interdisciplinary. Supported projects are expected to catalyze sustainable initiatives across schools and programs and may lead to further opportunities for internal and external funding.
The following people at Tufts are eligible to apply for a Tufts Innovates grant:
Each proposal must designate a single lead principal investigator, who must be a Tufts University faculty member.
Grants are expected to range from $500 to $25,000. Funding decisions are made through a peer review process including faculty and administrative staff and based on several criteria, including degree of educational innovation, potential impact on learning by Tufts students, likelihood for sustainability, and viability within departmental, school, and/or programmatic frameworks.
