This guide will assist you in conducting research for projects and grants related to scholarly teaching.

LITE Grants

Apply for a LITE Grant

If you are a staff or faculty member at the University of Waterloo and you are interested in doing research on teaching and learning, you may be eligible to apply for funding through a LITE Grant. Learning Innovation and Teaching Enhancement (LITE) Grants provide support for experimenting with and investigating innovative approaches to enhancing teaching that aim to foster deep student learning at the University of Waterloo.

The program is composed of two kinds of grants:

  • LITE Seed Grants (funding up to $5000 for one-year projects)
    Deadlines: February 1 and June 1
  • LITE Full Grants (funding up to $30,000 for two-year projects)
    Deadline: October 1

How to Use this Guide for LITE Grants

Each LITE Grant Proposal requires the author to review the relevant literature to contextualize their project. This guide will help you discover relevant teaching and learning research and refresh your research skills to help you research most effectively. 

In thinking about the process of your LITE grant project, you may want to conduct the research after browsing other funded projects, but before consulting Ethics guidelines.
