In keeping with the spirit of the intensives, the CEIH initiative seeks to encourage innovative pedagogical practices.

We invite faculty to submit proposals that are either preliminary ideas or fully developed intensives. CEIH funding is available for two kinds of proposals: 

  • EXPLORATORY — Preliminary ideas and/or intensive proposals that have not been submitted to CCP
  • DEVELOPED — Intensive proposals that have been submitted to and/or approved by CCP

Once we receive your proposal, we will send you a budget sheet to complete or help you develop a budget.

You can receive funding for: Travel, Conferences, Registration fees, Workshops and Trainings, Honoraria for guest speakers, Course materials and Supplies, Research materials, Faculty stipend for intensive development work done during the summer, Student stipend for student to work in collaboration with the Community Fellows program.  

Amount of funding:  Past funding requests have ranged from $500 – $ 6000. Faculty stipend for intensive work over the summer is $1000. Allocation of funds depends partly on the number of proposals received.
