REO Internal Funding Opportunities

With the generous support and funding from the Dean’s office of the School of Education & Human Development, REO provides internal seed grant competitions designed to support preliminary or exploratory research (Catapult) and empower excellence in teaching (TEGP). With the R3 series of funding opportunities, further support is available to our principal investigators with the purpose of increasing the competitiveness of promising proposals that need additional assistance to push them over the funding line with resubmission. Finally, the new Catalyst fund is designed to bolster efforts by our faculty toward the creation of research groups. REO welcomes ideas on what kinds of support are needed to ensure the success of our faculty researchers!
The currently open internal funding opportunities can be accessed on our InfoReady submission site.

Teaching Excellence Grant Program (TEGP)

The SEHD Teaching Excellence Grant Program (TEGP) provides grant funding awards designed to empower excellence in all aspects of teaching by SEHD faculty. TEGP projects should be to promote students’ learning, including:

  • The implementation of innovative, high impact teaching methods that can be immediately and successfully integrated into instructional practice across the SEHD and result in significant improvements in the learning outcomes of the students taught by SEHD faculty
  • The engagement of undergraduate students with the scholarship of teaching and learning
  • The improvement of distance education
  • To learn more about TEGP, email

The deadline for this competition was January 31st, 2024 at 11:59 PM CST and proposals are currently in the review stage. To access the guidelines, please click here.

Review, Revise, & Resubmit (R3) Program

The Review, Revise, & Resubmit (R3) Program supports SEHD PIs and their research teams to improve the competitiveness of previously submitted external grant proposals that were not funded but received feedback. Funds will support PIs to reinvest efforts in their external grant proposals that show promise based on reviewers or panel comments and feedback.

  • The written review comments of the external grant proposal must indicate that the proposed project is feasible and promising for funding despite some areas of weaknesses or limitations that can be addressed and improved upon
  • Resubmission of a revised proposal to the targeted sponsor must be made within 18 months of the activation of the R3 award
  • To learn more about R3, email

The deadline for this competition was January 19th, 2024 at 11:59 PM CST and proposals are currently in the review stage. To access the guidelines, please click here.

NSF Research on Innovative Technologies for Enhanced Learning (RITEL)

From the NSF, the RITEL program supports early-stage research in emerging technologies for teaching and learning that respond to pressing needs in authentic (real-world) educational environments. RITEL supports future-oriented exploratory and synergistic research in emerging technologies (including, but not limited to, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and immersive or augmenting technologies) for teaching and learning. The program accepts proposals that focus on learning, teaching, or a combination of both, and requires that projects must advance research on that front and on technology.  RITEL supports research in all learning contexts (e.g., formal, informal, workplace) and for all learner populations. Due: January 24, 2024
