CAFE Funding Programs

Educational Research Mini-Grants

The educational research mini-grants program is designed to help instructors tackle a teaching and learning issue in which a specific, measurable research question is examined to bring about improved student learning, retention or academic success. Data from 20 Educational Research Projects at Missouri S&T spanning five years of faculty projects, have shown measurable increases in instructor satisfaction, student learning, student-instructor interactions, and end of course evaluation scores. 

Professional Development Funds for Early Career Faculty

Professional Development Funds for Early Career Faculty of up to $1,000 are available to support registration fees, airfaire, hotel and per diem travel to a conference or workshop or to visit with fund managers. Proposals are welcome from both tenure track and non-tenure track faculty. Typically, the support is available for use during the summer or fall semester following the faculty member's first year on campus.

e Fellows Grant Program

The eFellows grant program is being re-instituted, thanks to funding from CAFE. More information coming in Spring 2018.
