Creative Teaching Grants & Fellowships

The Johnson Center for Creative Teaching offers five types of financial support for creative teaching projects.

Since 2001, the JCCTL Advisory Board has awarded Johnson Creative Teaching Summer Fellowships, Johnson Teaching Grants, Johnson Creative Teaching Technology Grants, JCCTL Departmental/Program Funding Grants, and Johnson Information Literacy Grants.

These grants are designed to support faculty members' efforts to utilize creative teaching in their courses. That is, they are intended to support innovative methods of teaching, rather than the teaching of new content per se.

Applications from all disciplines are encouraged. The key in applying for a fellowship or grant is to demonstrate that the project involves creative teaching.

Recipients of a JCCTL fellowship or grant must submit a written report at the conclusion of their project and be willing to make one or more presentations about their work in appropriate on-campus venues.

Applications should be submitted as email attachments to Paula Baer at
