LITS invites Bryn Mawr faculty, staff, and graduate students to apply for project grants to support digital teaching, learning, or research activities broadly construed. Digital Bryn Mawr Project Grants may be used to support professional development opportunities; curricular development; symposia or other events; and other teaching, learning, or research-focused projects, including digital scholarship projects.
These grants are intended to help advance engagement with digital technologies, regardless of an individual’s prior experience or expertise. We welcome proposals from absolute beginners, seasoned experts, and everyone in between! We support projects of different scales and at stages ranging from discovery/prototyping to implementation. Please see information on current and past projects for ideas.
Priority will be given to proposals that foreground collaborations among proposers and members of Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) and thereby help to build a supportive community of faculty, staff, and students engaged in digital pedagogy and scholarship.
Not sure if a Digital Bryn Mawr grant is appropriate for your project or how to get started? We can help! Please sign up for a consultation or info session.
We're happy to talk through ideas and goals, help you develop a reasonable budget or timeline, identify hardware and software resources or needs, and connect you with expertise or potential collaborators across campus. If you have a very long-term goals or a large-scale project, we can help you determine the junctures or phases a Digital Bryn Mawr grant would be most appropriate and beneficial.
Requests to support professional development opportunities or co-sponsorship of events can be submitted and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. We will review proposals for other types of projects twice a year, with deadlines for submission on Oct. 15 and March 15.
Proposals are reviewed by Teaching, Learning and Research Leadership team within LITS. Please feel free to contact any member of the committee with any questions you may have.
