Eberly Center supports faculty with developing Simon Initiative ProSEED and
Mellon Foundation Seed grants and projects
Simon Initiative ProSEED Grants and Mellon Foundation Seed Grants are intended to enable CMU faculty to pursue learning research or educational practice projects aimed at improving student learning outcomes at CMU and beyond.
The Eberly Center supports faculty throughout this process – from developing/refining proposal ideas to consulting on and support for implementing project activities. Below are resources CMU faculty have found useful in preparing proposals:
- Data Sources in Classroom-Based Educational Research
- Study Designs for Classroom-Based Educational Research
- Educational Technologies: Questions to Guide a Good Match
(and technology support we provide)
- Rubric for assessing draft proposals
For the Spring 2017 cycle, faculty interested in pursuing an educational practice proposal are strongly encouraged to discuss their ideas with an Eberly Center colleague at one of our drop-in individual consultation sessions (from 10am-2pm on 1/23 and 2/2 in Cyert Hall A-70) or to request a 1:1 consultation by emailing email@example.com.
