Curriculum Development Grants

List of Members of the Curriculum Development Grants Committee 

As of March 3, 2016, all fiscal year 2015-2016 curriculum development funds have been awarded by the Committee. Applications received in the Spring Quarter will be reviewed and awarded contingent upon available funds for the 2016-2017 fiscal year. PLEASE NOTE funds will not be available unless the current SCD-AFT contract is continued or a new contract is in place.

The Curriculum grants can be used to develop curriculum for any type of class taught by faculty at the Seattle Colleges.

  • Individual proposals for new courses are funded up to $3,000.
  • Individual proposals for course curriculum revision start at $600 up to a maximum of $1,800.
  • Group proposals are funded up to $5,400. (Group projects may apply to one college or involve two or more colleges in the district.)

Curriculum Grant Application: Access through the Intranet (use the Curriculum Grants Link).  Complete instructions are on the application.

Application Deadlines: Complete applications are due by Monday of Week 6 of every quarter, and decisions regarding funding are made by Week 8 of that same quarter. Curriculum deliverables/products are due on Week 6 one year after it was awarded. For example, if you applied for a grant Fall quarter in 2015, your curriculum must be completed by Week 6 of Fall quarter in 2016. If you submit your curriculum sooner than the deadline, the grant funds will be processed early (you don't have to wait a year to receive the funds if you finish before then!).

Submitting your Final Report:  Final reports should be uploaded to a canvas shell (name your course by the grant number, e.g. 16-CDG-99).  Invite all Curriculum Development Committee members to the canvas shell.  Committee member names can be found via the link at the top of this page.  Alternately, you may email your report to the committee members.
