Seedcorn fund

Colleagues are now invited to apply for Round Two of Seedcorn funding offered by TILT. This fund is intended to provide a small amount of money (up to £450) to support engagement in scholarly activity.

These might include, but are not limited to: supporting an initial pedagogic project that will serve as a proof of concept, the purchase or hire of equipment to use in learning and teaching innovation, or funding travel to other higher education institutions to present scholarly activities related to learning and teaching.

TILT is offering up to ten Seedcorn awards for 2016/17. These will be considered in two rounds of submission:

  • Round 1 deadline: 25 November 2016
  • Round 2 deadline: 17 February 2017

The number of awards made will be determined on the basis of the quality of submissions, and will be made on a competitive basis according to alignment with scheme criteria.

Members of NTU academic and professional services staff are eligible to apply. The application must be supported by their line manager. Applicants must have achieved Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy to be eligible for this scheme.

Further details about the TILT Seedcorn Fund and the application form can be found in the attached guidance document Word icon .

Completed applications for Round 2 should be sent by email to TILT with the subject of the email "TILT Seedcorn Fund" by 17th February 2017.
