The 2021-2022 DELTA Grants Cycle submissions will be accepted from April 19 – May 21. Stay tuned for updates in our monthly DELTA Connections newsletter.

The DELTA Grants program provides support, key services and financial resources to increase student success through faculty partnerships. Our goal is to collaborate on reusable efforts with a broad reach to enhance teaching and learning through technology and research-based best practices.

We offer several grant types to enhance the creation of online or hybrid courses and face-to-face courses, promote teaching effectiveness, develop large course redesigns, experiment with better ways to engage students and more.

For assistance with core questions from the proposal submission system please visit the DELTA Grants Guide. Improving how you answer these questions will assist you in strengthening the quality and competitiveness of your grant proposal.

This fall, DELTA will be offering shorter and more directed course improvement grants that will last a semester as opposed to the traditional year. If you are looking for the DELTA Rapid Grant category, please look for submission requests starting this August 2021!
