PURPOSE & SCOPE: Awards of up to $1,500 to fund the acquisition of specialized, permanent teaching materials for new courses or significant upgrades of existing courses. Applicants must demonstrate that these materials are essential to a course's instruction and that the proposed course represents a significant contribution to the College's curriculum. Applications must be accompanied by a Chair's endorsement which specifically indicates that the materials represent too much of a burden on the department's budget. Departments must make a good faith effort to defray a portion of the costs of the new materials. For the development of an Intensive Learning course, members of the faculty are encouraged to apply to the Intensive Learning Group for funds before applying to the FDC. Note: This grant is intended as an alternative to the Curriculum Development Grant, which does not fund materials and/or equipment purchases for course development.
