We are pleased to announce that funding for the LITE Seed Grants has increased from $5000 to $7500 as of January 2019.
Along with the increase in funding comes a new requirement - in order for your application to be considered, applicants are required to meet with Kyle Scholz or Kristin Brown within the first three weeks of the term in which they are applying. This meeting must occur, at the latest, one week prior to the submission deadline. At this meeting, we will discuss your project proposal and research plan, and suggest ways to enhance the quality and clarity of the application.
As a reminder, the next round of LITE Seed Grant applications are due February 1, 2019.
Our 2019 conference theme is “Teaching and Designing for Diverse Learners”. We invite you to submit proposals for presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and poster presentations that share your practices and research related to inclusive education.
