The AMATYC Foundation is currently redesigning its grant process. Until that time, we will not be accepting new applications for mini grants. The new Foundation grant structure will be announced at the 2015 AMATYC Annual Conference in New Orleans this November.
Mini-grants offer an opportunity and incentive to AMATYC
members to develop innovative projects that will have a positive impact on the
way mathematics is taught during the first two years of college and to share
the results of these projects so they benefit their AMATYC colleagues and
students. All regular AMATYC members are eligible to apply.
Individual or group projects should fall within the
- Projects involving the application of technology into
the learning process in ways that demonstrate creativity, purpose, and
- Projects designed to incorporate innovative teaching
or learning strategies into the learning process.
- Research projects in assessing or improving the
teaching and learning of mathematics.
Projects or topics that will be considered:
- Creating technology-based instructional materials or
tutorials for use in traditional or distance learning classrooms.
- Working with industry and businesses to collaborate on
training initiatives in mathematics.
- Creating training materials for faculty in how to use
technology in innovative ways in the classroom (e.g., multimedia streaming,
computer-based training, web-based training).
- Pursuing grant opportunities that would have an effect
on the instructional process.
Applicants can apply for up to $750. There will be up
to a total of $3000 available each year for the mini-grants.
- Proposals will be reviewed four times during the year
or until all allocated funds have been awarded. Application deadlines are:
February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.
- The mini-grant recipients will be notified within one
month after the submission deadline of the amount of each award. Members with
non-successful applications will be notified by this date also.
- The recipient will receive half of the grant at the
time of the award. The other half will be disbursed at the successful
conclusion of the project and the submission of a final report.
- The project must be completed within one year of the proposal
being accepted. The final report will include a written summary of the project
will also be encouraged to present at the annual AMATYC Conference and/or
affiliate meetings and to share their findings in an AMATYC publication.
