Berkeley Collegium Grant Proposals on "Linking Teaching and Research" due March 28, 2022

February 8, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

The Berkeley Collegium is pleased to issue a call for proposals to create and expand opportunities for undergraduates to engage in research and discovery.

At our world-leading research institution, faculty are committed to intellectual discovery and creation, and faculty likewise strive for excellence in their teaching. This grant program joins research and teaching by supporting faculty projects that introduce students to the methods, practices, dispositions, challenges, and joys of research and discovery. The program dovetails with broader campus efforts around Discovery by offering a laboratory to develop and test out curricular and co-curricular activities, programs, and courses that provide undergraduates with discovery opportunities.

The Collegium aims to fund up to seven projects of up to $15,000 each over a 1-2 year grant period (depending on the nature of the project). More grants may be funded if budgets are under the $15,000 maximum. The grant period begins at the start of the Fall 2022 semester.

Detailed information about the grant, as well as submission instructions and the submission form, can be found on the Berkeley Collegium webpage.

All applications must be received by the end of the day on Monday, March 28, 2022.

If you have questions, please email Leslie Harlson at

Best regards,

Oliver O’Reilly
Interim Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education
