TAP mini-grant‎ > ‎

Directions for TAP application

Applications:    TAP Applications are typically due by the 2nd Friday in October with award notifications by the 2nd Friday in November.   Faculty submitting an application for TAP mini-grant funding will complete a TAP Application which provides a format for reviewing the grant objectives, assessment plan, and anticipated outcomes.  The application is posted to the Assessment Committee webpage.  A budget form is included in the application, and the entire application is submitted as an email attachment to the chair of the assessment committee (dmyton@lssu.edu).  

The school chair, and dean, for the faculty members’ school/college must submit an acknowledgement of the proposed project by email to the chair of the assessment committee. If the total amount of grant funding available for the academic year is not awarded for projects proposed during the fall semester, a second round of applications may be accepted on a rolling basis. Announcements of grant awards for the first round of applications and the availability of funding for the second round will be distributed by the notification date listed on the TAP Timeline.  Descriptions of projects receiving grant funding will be posted on the web page of the Assessment Committee.
