Digital Salon Grants

Digital Salon Grants up to $7,000

Proposals for Digital Salon Grants are due on April 1, 2021.

Policy on Deadlines for Program Deadlines

The program deadlines are meant to facilitate application by a wide array of participants, as well as create fairness in the selection process. Program deadlines also assist administrative staff who work to support each group and all programs.  The Wabash Center will, when we see the necessity, extend the deadline of an application process.  We will rarely, if ever, extend the deadline for individual requests.  We ask participants, as well as recommenders, to respect these important deadline boundaries.  Adherence to deadlines foster fair-mindedness and a spirit of collegiality. Should an issue need to be arbitrated, please be in touch with the Director of the Wabash Center.

For Digital Salon Participants

A Wabash Center Digital Salon Grant proposal consists of the following:

The Grant Type to select is “Small Project”

This form requires contact information and signature for:

  • The Project Director(s) (the person(s) responsible for providing narrative report on grants, typically the person(s) overseeing the administration of the grant and writing the project proposal to apply for the grant).
  • The Financial Contact (the person responsible for receiving the check and providing financial reports of expenditures for the institution). This should be a different person than the project director.
  • The Authorization Contact (the person authorized to sign grant requests for the institution).
2. Proposal Narrative (1000-1500 words)

  • Identify the focus of the group (a cohort of 2-5 people) in a succinct statement upon what will the group focus pertaining to teaching and learning, the teaching life, and/or the scholarship of teaching? (1-3 sentences)
  • Describe the specific pedagogical goals, aims, or objectives for the cohort’s project and the conversation
  • List who will be involved in the cohort (2-5 participants) from your Salon and what they will contribute to the articulated project and conversation
  • Narrate the structure, activities, and timing of the conversations, project activities and/or gatherings, including details about the strategies and objectives for each stage
  • State how you will know, after all of the meetings and activities are complete, that this cohort project and set of conversations has met your expectations and achieved your goal. What would be different as a consequence of the grant?

5. Institutional Letter of Support

A letter of support from the applicant’s dean or department chair indicating their support of the project and what they hope will happen at the school or within the department as a consequence of the grant.

When preparing a grant proposal, we strongly recommend that you find  previous projects on similar issues and learn from their experience.

Grant Coaching

The Wabash Center understands our grants program as a part of our overall teaching and learning mission. We are interested in not only awarding grants to excellent proposals, but also in enabling faculty members to develop and hone their skills as grant writers. Therefore we offer grant coaching for all faculty interested in submitting a Wabash Center Project Grant proposal.

Contact Dr. Paul O. Myhre (myhrep@wabash.edu), Senior Associate Director of the Wabash Center, about grant ideas or with a proposal draft for which you want feedback and response.

There is no guarantee that a grant that has gone through our coaching process will be funded but we will help you present the project in the clearest and most coherent way.
