Educational Technology Grants
These grants are designed to assist faculty in learning educational technology and incorporating it into the curriculum to enhance teaching.
Engaged Learning Fellowships
Engaged-learning strategies include, but are not limited to, service-learning, problem-based learning, and learning communities. Engaged-Learning Fellows commit to implementing an engaged learning strategy in one of their courses during 2010-11. Fellows also commit to mentoring others who want to adopt the innovation, assessing the results of their innovation, and recommending library acquisitions where appropriate. Each fellow will receive a one-course reduction in the spring of 2010.
Greenberg Junior Faculty Grants
Made possible through the generosity of Arnold and Beverly Greenberg, the Greenberg Junior Faculty (GJF) Grants promote high-quality scholarship (e.g., research, creative activity) by faculty members who are just beginning their careers. GJF grants are intended (1) to provide seed funds for scholarly projects that may be submitted to outside funding agencies or (2) to fund worthwhile scholarly activities of a one-time nature.
International Center's Faculty Grants
International Center Faculty Grants may be used to internationalize the content of a course, to develop a study abroad component to a course, to present a paper with international content, or to do international research.
The sabbatical project should be one that adds to the strength of the University through the professional development of the faculty member. Faculty members may apply for a one-semester sabbatical or a one-year sabbatical.
Overseen by the Faculty Senate, the Summer Stipend program is designed to permit free time in the summer to engage in scholarly or creative activity.

Named for the first president of the University of Hartford and overseen by the Faculty Senate, Coffin Grants offset direct expenses associated with the pursuit of substantive scholarly and creative work.
