Applications – Spring 2017

We have closed the spring 2017 round of applications for “Broadening the Bridge” grants to support collaborative projects led by Carleton and St. Olaf faculty and staff members.

The next round of funding will occur in fall 2017. Proposals will be evaluated by a committee of academic leaders and faculty from the two colleges according to their potential to

  • Support exploration and pilot activities that seem likely to mature into substantive curricular collaborations;
  • Advance the colleges’ goals of fostering strong teaching and research; and
  • Address specific goals for departments or programs that have been previously identified as significant by faculty members, academic leaders, outside reviewers, or other stakeholders.

Applicants can visit the Awarded Grants page to review the projects funded in the seven rounds of grantmaking to date.
