Learning Innovation and Teaching Enhancement (LITE) Full Grant Guidelines

NOTE: LITE Full Grants are currently suspended. October LITE Full Grant rounds have been replaced with an additional LITE Seed Grant round.

LITE Full Grants can help you investigate larger-scale or longer-term teaching and learning research projects and attend instructional development activities. Read the guidelines below to learn about project ideas, eligibility criteria for applicants and expenses, the application and adjudication process, and useful resources. 

LITE Full Grant proposals may focus on: 

  • assessing new approaches to teaching and learning (what is possible and does it work?) 
  • critically examining student learning with existing instructional approaches (what is happening and what could be improved?)
  • pursuing instructional development (teaching enhancement) opportunities (how could I teach differently to better facilitate deep student learning?).

Amount: Up to $15,000 per year (for a maximum of two years and $30,000)

Consultation deadline: One week prior to application deadline

We are here to help 

Annik Bilodeau, Educational Developer, Research and Consulting, and Brianna Bennett, Educational Research Associate, are happy to discuss your LITE Grant project ideas, review draft applications, and support you throughout the application process.

Reminder: In order for your application to be considered, applicants are required to meet with Annik Bilodeau or Brianna Bennett within the first three weeks of the term. 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.
