The Presidential Chair Fellows Curriculum Enrichment Grant Program provides an opportunity for a team of two or more faculty members from a department to develop, improve, transform, and examine core areas of the undergraduate curriculum. The grant is a means to engage in a systematic, forward-looking curriculum project expected to render fundamental and breakthrough ideas which will enhance and transform Berkeley's undergraduate experience. For the upcoming grant cycle, we will be soliciting proposals where faculty will engage in intentional design of student learning opportunities that lead to a Discovery Experience  for undergraduate majors in academic departments.
The purpose of this grant and learning community program is to make funds available to carry out curriculum enrichment efforts that are meaningful and achievable. The grant program will fund up to four projects, each up to $22,000 over the one-year grant period. Funds are intended to make curriculum enrichment projects possible at the department or program level that may involve curricular revision or the introduction of new curricular components that address a specific need or opportunity for Discovery Experience. In order to seed the broadest number of sustainable efforts, we will provide no more than one grant per department. Departments who have not previously been awarded a grant from the Presidential Chair Fellows program will be given priority consideration during review.
