Classroom Enhancement Grant

About the Grant

These grants are open to all faculty.  Faculty may apply for grants throughout the academic year for research-based activities or invited classroom guests that support efforts to enrich the teaching experience with a focus on ethics, broadly construed.  These grants may be used to invite a guest lecturer from outside Dartmouth to a class, go on a research-related field trip, or engage in other activities that support the curriculum or classroom experience.  For more information about Dartmouth's current travel guidelines, visit:

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. Honorarium limit up to $500 per person and any additional funds used for travel or other costs. Honorariums for Zoom classroom visits are permissible. Faculty may submit applications totaling up to $3,000 per fiscal year.  The Institute reviews these grant requests on a rolling basis and the award (which may be less than the amount requested) depends on the impact of the speaker in advancing ethics instruction in the class as well as the availability of funds.
