To advance our faculty's scholarship, we provide a variety of grants that support faculty travel, research, innovation, and course redesigns.
All members of the Mills faculty who wish to redesign an existing course are encouraged to submit a Course Redesign Grant application that includes one or more of the following goals:
Two faculty categories are eligible to apply for the Faculty Travel Grant:
The Mary Ann Childers Kinkead (MACK) Faculty Innovation Grant exists to inspire and support faculty leadership, collaboration, and innovation that reflect the mission of Mills College and the hallmarks of Mary Ann Childers Kinkead’s history and relationship with Mills as an undergraduate and graduate student, faculty member, faculty leader, and administrator. Check back in March 2021 for application information.
All full-time members of the faculty who wish to conduct research or scholarly or creative work are eligible for this grant. The grant may be used towards transportation and lodging, meal costs, and supplies and equipment. Grants must be used and documentation submitted within 12 months of the award or the funds will be forfeited. Due to funding constraints, many meritorious proposals do not receive funding. Therefore, if you receive a grant and are unable to use all or a part of the funds, please notify the Mills Faculty Development Committee as soon as possible. Check back in March 2021 for application information.
