Writing Across the Curriculum Grants

The Writing Program funds summer grant opportunities for faculty. Writing Across the Curriculum Grants will fund up to 6 weeks ($3,600) in the Summer of 2018 to design or redesign courses that will provide writing assignments suitable for the sophomore portfolio or for writing in the major. One grant can support an individual faculty member, or grants can be divided or combined for two or more faculty working in teams. Proposals from interdisciplinary teams or for department-wide projects are welcome. Proposals may address courses at all levels, although preference will be given to proposals directed toward the Argument & Inquiry seminars or WR2 courses. Successful proposals have ranged from revision of existing courses to development of new courses (some interdisciplinary), creation of a departmental writing guide, and department-level reviews of writing in the major. Grant recipients will be expected to participate in the Writing-Across-the-Curriculum Workshop (December, 2017) and the Portfolio Workshop (June 12-14, 2018). (All faculty participants in those workshops receive stipends.) Proposals will be reviewed by the WAC Advisory Board and the Faculty Curricular Planning Committee. Deadline: February 5, 2018.

Please call George Cusack (x4082) anytime after August 15 with questions.
