Art of Writing Curriculum Development Grant

The Art of Writing Curriculum Grant is designed to aid in the creation of new undergraduate writing courses. Each course should be devoted to a specific theme and should offer undergraduates the opportunity to write in a variety of genres. Courses focused on multimedia composition, interdisciplinary topics, and contemporary events and innovations are especially welcomed. We particularly encourage submissions from departments underrepresented in our seminar offerings.

If awarded the grant, the faculty member and Graduate Student Instructor will be expected to teach an undergraduate seminar capped at 15 students.

The Art of Writing Curriculum Grant will provide the graduate student with $2500 in GSR funding to work with the faculty member in developing the new course. Up to $2500 in funding for course enhancements will be made available by request. When the host departments have listed the course, funds for one course release for the faculty member and full funding for the GSI will be provided.

The next application cycle will be announced here.
