Faculty can still apply for Mutual Mentoring mini grants for 2013-2014. Applications are due November 4, 2013.
The competition for 2014-2015 grants (mini and team) will be announced in November.
Principal full-time faculty members (in the categories of tenure, extended employment, and renewable term appointments) are eligible.
Particular attention will be given to proposals that address a mentoring need that cannot be fully satisfied on campus. The selection committee is particularly interested in grant proposals that meet following criteria:
- Impact: How does the project address an unmet mentoring need?
- Feasibility: How does the project’s scope and budget reflect realistic, practical, and fiscally responsible mentoring outcomes?
- Inclusion: How does the project bring faculty together in a way that respects, promotes, and encourages diversity?
- Replication: How can the project serve as a model to be replicated at The New School?
Please note: Grants cannot be used to fund pre-existing programs or regular departmental/divisional activities.
