Williams Council extends deadline for instructional grants

The deadline for submitting proposals for 2015-16 Williams Instructional Grants has been extended through Monday, Feb. 9.

Grant recipients receive financial support to develop or restructure classes to more actively engage students. The Williams Council is particularly interested in ideas that use student writing to enhance learning and encourage independent exploration of course material.

The original announced deadline was Feb. 6, but the extension will give applicants more time to submit materials.

The Williams Fund website includes instructions for submitting proposals, as well as descriptions of past recipients. For other questions, contact Dave Hubin at hubin@uoregon.edu or 541-346-3036.
