Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning

Breeden Endowment Grants


Breeden Endowment Grant

The 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; the grant review and selection panel is drawn from the University Senate Teaching Effectiveness Committee.

While the Request for Proposals is typically issued each Spring for projects to be completed during the following academic year, spring semester is typically full of research, teaching, and end-of-the-year opportunities. Therefore, Teaching Effectiveness Committee and the Biggio Center has voted to move the Breeden Grant proposal submission and review process to the fall semester beginning this fall. Please note the new timetable and thank you for spreading the word about this change.

The deadline for Breeden Grant Proposals is Monday, November 7, 2016 at 4:45pm.
