The ITIF does not directly support faculty remuneration, however, it should be considered a resource for departments and programs to further faculty development. A strong evaluative component is expected in each project and the outcomes should be of publishable quality.
The ITIF does not pay for basic computer and related equipment expenses, nor will such items be considered as matching funds. However, specialized equipment that is specifically related to the project may be eligible, so long as a justification for inclusion is contained in the application.
The ITIF does not provide ongoing support for any initiative beyond the initial grant. Proposals are encouraged to clearly articulate plans for sustained funding of successful projects. It is expected that, if successful, the results of the ITIF projects will be meaningfully incorporated into a unit’s education programs.
Research Assistant (RA) expenses are eligible for funding.
