ASA Carla B. Howery Teaching Enhancement Fund

Call for Applications: Carla B. Howery Teaching Enhancement Fund
Deadline: February 1, 2020

The Carla B. Howery Teaching Enhancement Fund provides small grants to support projects that advance the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) within the discipline of sociology. The Carnegie Foundation has defined SoTL as “problem posing about an issue of teaching or learning, study of the problem through methods appropriate to the disciplinary epistemologies, applications of results to practice, communication of results, self-reflection, and peer review.”

Howery teaching grants can support an individual, a program, a department, or a committee of a state/regional association. ASA may award multiple grants, each up to $2,500. Funds can be used for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to: summer salary, equipment, software, travel, meetings, transcription of interviews and survey implementation.

Principal criteria for the award are: the project is innovative, advances the teaching and learning of sociology, serves as a seed project that will continue to have an impact over time, and will be systemic in its impact. ASA membership is not a criterion for application or selection for this grant; however, recipients must be ASA members before the final award is made. Applications from all sub-areas of the discipline are welcome.
