CTL Mini Grant Competition Info
Submitting and procuring research grants is an important part of faculty life. While the CTL offers mini teaching innovative grants it is important for faculty to secure research grants within their fields of discipline. For some tips on how to write grants, please visit, Dr. Melissa Harrington’s (DSU Biology Professor) www.grant-tutor.org

We operate as part of the University’s Title III Grant. Title III is a federal government assistance program given to historically Black colleges and Universities. Title III assures equity in educational opportunities for all students. CTL works in conjunction with the Title III office to assure that university faculty are equipped with the tools and resources needed to enrich their teaching in order to increase student learning.
All expenditures submitted by the Center to the Title III office must be allowable under federal guidelines.
