TBC Major/Mid-Size Grants (Faculty)

Due to COVID-19, the application process has been suspended at this time.

Major Grant (funding up to $20,000)

Examples of activities suitable for a Major Grant include taking students to a series of world-class cultural events (play, opera, etc.) or visiting a unique site that is the focus of a course and for which there is no reasonable analog nearby. It is expected that these activities will be scheduled during fall or spring break and that the trip will last at least four days.

Faculty can receive a maximum of one Major Grant every three years. This grant is highly competitive, as the College only funds one each semester.

Mid-Size Grant (funding up to $5,000)

Examples of such activities suitable for the Mid-Size Grant include taking students to a cultural event (play, film, opera, etc.) or visiting a unique site that is the focus of the course located at a distance for which overnight accommodations would generally be needed.

Faculty can receive a maximum of one Mid-Size Grant per year and projects normally will not be funded two years in a row. This grant is competitive, as the College will only fund two to three grants per semester.
