TLtC grant proposals are due Tuesday, Oct. 28

Examples of TLtC-funded proposals can be found at www.uctltc.org/funding/proposal.html.

The TLtC awards Feasibility/Planning Grants (up to $5,000) to groups of three or more faculty, from a minimum of two campuses, who need resources to determine the feasibility of an intercampus collaborative project and/or want to plan a Full-scale Expansion & Implementation project proposal.
