The Grants Development Office (GDO) announces three 2017/18 SUNY grant programs with spring 2017 deadlines. Those interested in submitting a proposal to any of these programs must contact the GDO by the dates designated for each. Please note that the SUNY guidelines, as well as campus policy, states that all external grant proposals must be submitted through appropriate channels (i.e., the GDO).
The Innovative Instruction Technology Grants (IITG) program is designed to incubate “technologies in service of pedagogy” and to encourage faculty and staff to reach outside of departmental and campus boundaries to share and “scale up” innovations. SUNY Oneonta faculty/staff have received awards each of the five years the program has been offered. There are three tiers of funding ($10k–no match; $20k–25% campus match; $60k–50% campus match). Application deadline is March 5. Interested faculty/staff must contact the GDO by February 10.
The Conversations in the Disciplines (CID) program provides funding of up to $5,000 in support of intercampus scholarly conferences that bring together SUNY faculty and visiting scholars from non-SUNY institutions to examine new trends, address changes and challenges, review promising research findings, etc. SUNY CID focuses on scholarly and creative development rather than administrative, curricular, or instructional matters designed to foster both professional and personal growth of participants and their respective campuses. Application deadline is April 7. Interested faculty/staff must contact the GDO by March 17.
The Explorations in Diversity and Academic Excellence program awards grants of up to $10,000 to support innovative campus-based projects that “illuminate and strengthen the intersections between diversity and academic excellence.” Application deadline is April 14. Interested faculty/staff must contact the GDO by March 20. (This is particularly critical, as each SUNY campus is limited to no more than two proposal submissions; the GDO will coordinate with the Office of Equity and Inclusion regarding priority projects.)
