Innovative Instruction Technology Grant is BACK: Apply for up to $60,000

IITG Decorative

The 2023 Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Innovative Instruction Technology Grants (IITG) program has gone out. These competitive, peer-reviewed awards of up to $60,000 are allocated to demonstrate, communicate and replicate innovations developed at campuses across SUNY.

The 2023 RFP is posted on the IITG website along with submission instructions and a listing of past funded projects and posted outcomes.

The IITG program seeks to promote innovation and research and also foster an understanding of how new technologies serve pedagogy.

Funding may be requested to:

  • Align with the charges of the recent FACT2 task groups – “Leveraging the DLE” and “Inclusive Pedagogy”
  • Address diversity, equity, inclusion, and/or social justice
  • Support modular courses or pathways that are highly transferable, relevant for workforce development, and “stackable” into micro-credentials, certificates or degrees
  • Build competencies and support post traditional and adult learners – particularly those seeking to reinvent their academic or career trajectory
  • Improve student learning, student success, and program completion

The response deadline for the RFP is February 17, 2023.

Proposals may be submitted via SUNY’s online grant management website.  Applicants will need to create an account to submit a proposal.  Each proposal requires a brief project description, a project budget and justification, and an assessment plan.  Multiple proposals from each campus are welcome; proposals featuring multi-campus collaborations are strongly encouraged. Your campus SUNY FACT2 representative can assist with further questions or refer you to resources related to the IITG program priorities.

We anticipate award announcements will be made by May 8th. Since IITG funding comes from the state’s University-wide allocations, recipients must follow state and campus procurement policies. The timing of the award announcement intentionally precedes the annual Conference on Instruction and Technology (CIT), hosted this year at SUNY Oswego.  All grant recipients will be encouraged to attend the conference.  Please be aware that all project outcomes must be documented and openly shared through selection of a Creative Commons license on the IITG website.

Additional communication will be forthcoming via the IITG website, and SUNY and FACT2 listservs. There will be an informational webinar January 17 from 12pm to 1pm that will be recorded for those who can’t make it. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact Chris Price, administrator of the IITG program at for additional information or with any questions.
