The Review Process

The 250th Anniversary Fund committee consists of the dean and deputy dean of the college, the senior associate dean of the faculty, and the director of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. A faculty committee reviews all applications before the final stage of the selection process and makes recommendations to the committee based on how directly the proposed courses respond to University priorities (e.g., service, international, cultural studies, online learning). Awards are announced in late March or early April.

While all faculty members are eligible to apply, proposals from tenure-track and tenured faculty will be given priority in the selection process. The committee seeks to support courses that have the potential to be offered on a continuing basis and applicants may seek up to three years of funding.
