Applying for a Grant

Applications are now available for mentoring projects in 2015-2016. Applications are due March 2, 2015.  

Eligibility

Principal full-time faculty members (in the categories of tenure, extended employment, and renewable term appointments) are eligible.

Criteria

Particular attention will be given to proposals addressing a mentoring need that cannot be fully satisfied on campus. The selection committee is particularly interested in grant proposals that meet the following criteria:

  • Impact: How does the project address an unmet mentoring need? Is the project likely to be effective in developing long-term mentoring support?
  • 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 or divisional activities.
