Breeden Endowment Grants

Breeden Endowment Grant

Daniel F. Breeden Endowed Grant Program supports teaching and learning projects that directly benefit the instructor, students, and AU’s overall teaching program. Approximately $30,000 is available each academic year for awards. The Breeden Program is managed by the Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning; and the grant review and selection panel is drawn from the University Senate Teaching Effectiveness Committee. The Request for Proposals is issued early each Spring for projects to be completed during the following academic year.

The deadline for 2014-2015 proposals has passed. Please check back for application information.
