At Illinois State University, we define the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) as the “systematic reflection/study on teaching and learning [of ISU students] made public.” This definition was created to include a wide range of research (broadly defined) on the teaching and learning of our ISU students that is presented, published, created, or performed.
Applications are being accepted for the SoTL Travel Grant Program for travel to present SoTL work. Funds may be used toward conference registration and/or travel costs. This applies to a trip already taken (and not fully reimbursed) or to be taken, to present SoTL work this fiscal year. Virtual conference registration can be reimbursed as part of this grant program. We expect to award 10-12 grants for FY24. Please note that faculty/staff are eligible for one travel grant (of any kind) per year. Awards of up to $750 will be available to those presenting SoTL research at disciplinary or other teaching/learning conferences. Special awards of up to $1,000 will be available to those presenting at international teaching and learning conferences.
All tenured and tenure-line faculty, non-tenure line faculty, faculty associates, and AP staff with teaching/teaching support responsibilities at Illinois State University and under contract at time of travel are eligible to apply. Proposals must meet the following requirements.
Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on May 1, 2024 and should include:
Recipients will be notified 2 weeks after the grant application due date regarding the status of their application. All funds must be spent and reimbursement paperwork filed before June 30, 2023 (note, if reimbursement is filed more than 60 days after travel, taxes apply).
