College of Idaho Grant Funds

At the center of the College’s mission is the concept of the teacher-scholar—a gifted, dedicated teacher whose work in the classroom is enhanced by deep professional training and an ongoing commitment to scholarship.

The College has established a fund to spur research by reinvesting recovered indirect costs. This fund supports summer grant-writing stipends, sabbatical research, student-faculty collaboration, and other scholarly activities.

More detailed information on internal funding opportunities is available below (PDFs for download).
