Grants of up to $75,000 available for innovative digital education initiatives

The provost's DELTA initiative—short for Digital Education and Learning Technology Acceleration—is offering grants of up to $75,000 for students, faculty, and staff seeking funding to develop digital education initiatives with the potential to demonstrably enhance the online and on-campus teaching and learning experience at Johns Hopkins. Since 2018, the Provost's Office has awarded 36 DELTA grants, totaling more than $2.3 million in funding.

In keeping with the university's stated priorities, the Provost's Office is particularly interested in encouraging work that advances cross­-disciplinary and cross­-divisional collaboration, pursues individual and collective excellence, translates knowledge into meaningful impact, and promotes economic opportunity in Baltimore and other communities of which we are a part. The review committee will prioritize proposals that combine innovative digital education initiatives with one or more of these goals.

Proposals are due by May 31 and will be reviewed by the Office of the Provost and a committee composed of representatives from each school. Up to five proposals are expected to be funded in 2024.

"We are excited to continue sponsorship of DELTA to support faculty who are seeking innovative approaches to engage, challenge, and mentor students," said Stephen Gange, professor and executive vice provost. "Each corner of our university brims with creative teaching and transformative learning experiences."
