Innovation Seed Grants

The Seattle Pacific University Board of Trustees has provided $50,000 of funding for faculty-driven initiatives in the name of academic innovation. For the 2017 call, we are looking to fund projects with $1,000 - $2,500 as seed grants for growth and innovation. The staff of the Institute for Academic Innovation is committed to helping faculty reach their pedagogical goals. Proposals that align with SPU’s strategic will be viewed very favorably.

Applications are received on a rolling deadline as funds are available, with the expectation that by the end of the following school year the instigators will have initiated their innovation and be able to report on its outcomes and the future of the project.
