Signature Experience Course Development Mini-Grants

This grant is offered as part of the Signature Experience initiative to promote experiential learning opportunities in undergraduate courses at Georgia State University. The goal of the grant is to support faculty efforts to develop or adapt real-world, hands-on, innovative course experiences that address aims such as increasing knowledge and retention, promoting critical thinking and concept application, and developing career-ready skills. The grant can be used to create a new experiential learning course or to enhance an existing course to add an experiential learning component. Several grants are available each year, with a maximum award up to $1,500 per applicant.
