Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Office of the Vice Provost for Information Services, I am pleased to announce the opening of the call for proposals for the 2017-2018 Learning Innovation Grants.

In 2016-2017, $160,000 was awarded to support 20 Individual projects and nearly $200,000 was awarded to collaborative teams to support 2 Scaled projects. Consistent with last year, awards will be offered in two categories.

Individual Grants (up to $10,000)

10 to 15 individual grants will be awarded to faculty at the OSU Corvallis campus. These awards are intended to bring innovation to the learning experience by providing seed funding for pilot projects combining effective pedagogy with technology or other educational technology efforts.

These are one-time grants, not an ongoing service fund.

Scaled Grants (up to $100,000)

Scaled Grants will be awarded to multi-departmental teams at the OSU Corvallis campus who are launching new initiatives or expanding existing ones. Co-contributed resources of staff time and/or funds are expected, and a sustainability plan for maintaining the initiative should be included with the proposal. Deans need to review and actively support the project. Projects should directly contribute to student learning and experience: although research may be conducted on a funded project, the grant funds are not intended to support research itself.

Applications for Scaled Grants will be accepted in Winter 2018. (A separate RFP for Scaled Grant proposals will come out in January 2018.)

NEW! Descriptions of the Individual and Scaled Grant awards, including the successful Scaled Grant proposal documents, are now available on the LIG web site: . If you are interested in learning more about the Learning Innovation Grants, an information session will be held in the upcoming weeks. Meanwhile, please feel free to contact Robin Pappas with questions at

We look forward to seeing your wonderful ideas!

Best regards,

Robin Pappas
