Scholarship & Teaching Development Grants

The OFD is committed to promoting the development of teaching and scholarship by UMassD faculty. The OFD Scholarship and Teaching Development Grants support faculty publications, conference presentations, and the development of teaching or research materials. We invite full-time and part-time faculty who seek support for teaching or research development to apply.
