Apologies for the cross post.

For those of you who know of with faculty and instructional staff, particularly in the areas of CS, design and HCI, would you mind forwarding this teaching grant information to them?


Teach Access will be awarding 20 grants of $5,000 each to faculty at institutions of higher education to develop modules, presentations, exercises, or curriculum enhancements or syllabus changes that infuse the fundamental concepts and skills of accessible design and development into existing technology- and design-focused courses.

These awards will be made to full-time, part-time, or adjunct faculty in computer science, design, user experience research, human-computer interaction, and related fields at higher education institutions in the U.S. (with ten reserved for faculty at New York City-based colleges and universities).

Teach Access is accepting proposal submissions through June 4 at 5pm ET, with awardees to be announced in late June for courses to be taught from the Fall of 2018 through the Spring of 2019. Please consider applying if you meet the eligibility requirements, or share this announcement with faculty members who may be interested in including the teaching of accessibility principles in their courses. Please also share the Call for Proposals link on your social media accounts to help us get the word out! <http://teachaccess.org/facultygrants/>
