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 several educational funds that help enable MIT faculty to initiate innovative educational projects that enrich the curriculum and enhance the student experience.

  • Reimagining Undergraduate Education at MIT provides funding for broad initiatives that forge innovative linkages between undergraduate education and the student experience, such as increasing self-efficacy, reducing stress levels that negatively impact learning and well-being, or promoting leadership and service
  • 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.
  • Alumni Class Funds provide 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.
