CTL TA Training Grant Proposal

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) supports departments or individual faculty that wish to establish a new teaching assistant training program or to enhance an existing program. Awards of up to $5,000 are available as one-time seed grants for the next academic year, and awards of up to $2,500 are available on a rolling basis for the current academic year. For more information, please contact Tim Randazzo.

Tips for successful proposals:

— Proposals must have the endorsement of the department/program chair and of the faculty member with oversight for TA training.

— Proposals should involve, if possible, graduate student collaboration in the program design and implementation.

— Since CTL TA Training Grants are one-time seed grants, it is expected that ongoing support, if needed, will be provided by sources other than CTL. Budgets will begin on September 1 of the new fiscal year unless there is an explicit request to expend funds in the summer prior.

— Responses to questions 1-3 below should total no more than 1,000 words.

Sample Grants
Please note that winning submissions may be used as examples for future prospective applicants on the Teaching Commons website (with budget figures redacted) unless you explicitly request otherwise.

Upon completion of the project, please submit to CTL a report of about 450 words answering the questions, "What did the grant accomplish?" and "What good practices for TA training did we identify?" Send to teachingcommons@stanford.edu. Examples or products may be shared online.

CTL Assistance
