Dee Family Technology Grants Proposal Submission


The deadline for ARCC and Dee grants for the Spring 2024 semester is April 1st. All proposals must include an IT specialist's signature, and IT requires that you submit your proposal to them no later than 3 weeks (March 11) before the deadline.


Please Note:  All signatures must be obtained prior to the funding deadline.  This implies that your college's ARCC representative, your department chair, your dean (if applicable), and your college committee must all have time to consider the proposal.  In addition, all proposals will need an IT specialist signature, and it is required that you leave time - 3 weeks - before the deadline for that (March 11th for this semester).  It is important that the college committees establish internal deadlines that will give them time to rank their college's proposals.  You must also provide evidence supporting your requested budget in the form of quotes, pricing information, etc.  If you have any questions, please contact your college ARCC representative or the ARCC Chair.

The Dee Family Technology Grants provide support for faculty projects using technology in research or applying technology to pedagogy.  Funds are distributed based on a competitive proposal process and proposals are reviewed by the Academic Resources and Computing Committee. 

In order to qualify for funding, a successful proposal must fit into one of the following general categories:

1. Projects specifically related to faculty research or scholarly activities.

2. Discipline-specific software to enable a faculty member to enhance an existing course, or to develop a new course. 

3. One-time technical support for the development of special software related to a specific course.

4. Costs associated with one-time faculty training in an area of technology directly applicable to the academic mission of the institution.

5. Requests for specific pieces of hardware are acceptable.  However, the hardware should be essential for the completion of a project in one of the four categories above.
