Curriculum grants can be used to develop curriculum for any type of class taught by faculty at the Seattle Colleges. We support face-to-face, online, hybrid, and open educational resource (OER) projects equally, based on the merits of the project. Follow the link below to access the application via the intranet, which has complete guidelines and requirements for the grants.
All faculty are encouraged to apply. The agreement provides for $20k for FTF and $10K for PTF annually.
- Individual proposals for new courses are funded up to $3,000.
- Individual proposals for course curriculum revision start at $600 up to a maximum of $1,800.

Application Review: Applications are reviewed during weeks 9 and 10 of each quarter (except summer). Applicants will hear back from the committee during week 11 of the quarter in which they apply.
Deliverables Due Date: Curriculum deliverables/products are due on Week 6 one year after it was awarded. For example, if you applied for a grant Fall quarter in 2015, your curriculum must be completed by Week 6 of Fall quarter in 2016. If you submit your curriculum sooner than the deadline, the grant funds will be processed early (you don’t have to wait a year to receive the funds if you finish before then!).
Submitting your Deliverables: Deliverables should be uploaded to a canvas shell (name your course by the grant number, e.g. 16-CDG-99). Invite all Curriculum Development Committee members to the canvas shell. Committee member names can be found via the link at the top of this page. Alternately, you may email your report to the committee members.
Important Note: The application requires signatures from your Unit Administrator and from your VPI. The deadline for these signatures is Monday of Week 8 of the quarter. You are responsible for following through to make sure these deadlines are met. Log back in to your application page and scroll to the bottom of your application. Your application will have notations when your Unit Administrator and VPI have approved.
The following rubric may be useful in preparing your application. This is the rubric the awards committee uses in evaluating your application.
