Creative Teaching Grants
Creative Teaching Grants are offered through the Faculty Development Council in keeping with the mission to:
- Recognize teaching as a domain of scholarship in various disciplines, worthy of direct attention, focus and constant improvement
- Support learning research designed to discover and verify creative learning experiences that will empower students to become life long learners
Grants are awarded each year to provide funding to support faculty in efforts to develop ways of improving the teaching or learning environment of the Azusa Pacific community. Monies are budgeted each year for these type of grants. Additional grant funding is available for academic interns to assist faculty in related projects. Academic interns are students with outstanding academic records who will assist faculty but also benefit from the academic experience.
Two types of grants are available. Creative Teaching Grants are awarded to chosen applicants each fall and range from $500-$2,500. Faculty Development Mini-Grants are awarded to chosen applicants each spring and range from $500-$1,000. Applications for each may be found through the links below.
