TBC Small Grant (Faculty)

All College of Arts and Letters faculty, including adjuncts and visitors, are eligible to apply for a Teaching Beyond the Classroom Small Grant for their undergraduate classes. For graduate student grants, please see Small TBC Grant (Graduate) page.

Individual faculty members may apply for up to four separate grants (but only one per course) during the academic year, provided that the total funding requested does not exceed $1,500 annually. Additionally, department chairs, directors of undergraduate studies, and other department leaders may make one application per year for large-scale events not tied to a single course. Proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year, except for summer.

  • After the grant is awarded, the funds will be transferred directly into the awardee’s discretionary account once provided to Brenda Teshka. The awardee will have 30 days after the event to supply receipts for expenditures. Any excess will be transferred back into the grant account. If the awardee fails to supply receipts within 30 days, the full grant award will be transferred back into the Teaching Beyond the Classroom account.
  • Tickets from a Notre Dame vendor (DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, etc.) will be arranged by you and we will supply the vendor with the grant account number. This cost will be deducted from the award amount transferred to your discretionary fund, if any.
