Faculty Research, Scholarship & Practice-Based Project Grants
The seed grant provides single-year finding to support faculty development with a focus on the research/scholarship and research/practice part of the academic role, as distinct from teaching and service.
Through the Thomas Jefferson University Project Completion Grant, the University provides funding to support faculty member’s research, scholarship, and/or practice endeavors that satisfy the two following goals:
- Has extremely scarce to no external funding opportunities.
- Results in a deliverable(s) that has significant and measurable value in building the external reputation of both the faculty member and the University.
The priorities for Nexus Learning Grants are:
- Document and disseminate current Nexus Learning practices at Jefferson to both on-campus and wider (external) audiences through workshops, publications, and/or faculty mentoring/development programs (e.g., developing communities of learners on campus) to increase awareness, understanding, and use of Nexus Learning methodologies and skills.
- Conduct classroom, lab, clinic or studio based pedagogical research projects centered on Nexus Learning practices, activities and/or assessment of outcomes.
