Internal Grant Program Details

With generous support of the Office of the President, VITAL is pleased to announce the continuation of a special grant category focused on interdisciplinary learning and teaching, based on modifications of the President's Interdisciplinary Grant program. Interdisciplinary courses may be taught by a single faculty member or they may incorporate team-teaching. The purpose of this program is to support full-time Villanova faculty members to develop and implement interdisciplinary learning in courses and/or curricula for undergraduate and/or graduate students at Villanova. The program aims to promote the sustainability of interdisciplinary courses for both online and /or on-campus delivery.

Interested faculty members are highly encouraged to contact Dr. Gabriele Bauer with proposal ideas before submitting a full proposal. Please click on Call for Proposals (PDF) for detailed information on grant proposal submission and project ideas.
