Grants for Educational Innovation

In today’s increasingly fast-moving, complex, and competitive world, the need for flexibility and creativity in teaching and learning is crucial. DUE manages the distribution of two curriculum development funds which have been key in providing resources to MIT faculty to initiate innovative educational projects that enrich student learning:

  • The d'Arbeloff Fund for Excellence in Education supports innovation in teaching and curriculum design that enhances and potentially transforms the educational experience of MIT's undergraduate students
  • The Alumni Class Funds provides seed money for new, "high risk" initiatives that encourage creative curriculum and teaching changes, improve the quality of teaching, and enrich the learning experience, including the imaginative use of technology and applications.
