Faculty who plan to spend all or part of their Developmental Leave working on projects directly related to new course or enhanced curriculum development may apply for Developmental Leave Travel and Materials to defray non-salary costs related to their projects. Funding is limited to a maximum of $2000 per semester of leave.
Projects must be directly related to teaching or pedagogy. For example they would involve:
doing research on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) in your field.
participating in a teaching-related workshop, where the faculty member will learn new techniques or approaches that can be brought back to specific classes at UND.
learning about new and innovative ways of teaching one's subject.
developing a new course based on work done during the leave.
Proposals should be clear, complete & well organized with the following three sections (in this order):
I. A Cover Sheet.
II. A copy of the approved leave project and a memo calling attention to those aspects of the project that are directly related to teaching with an itemized budget, listing the following:
costs related to the project
amounts received from other sources
amount you are requesting from OID
III. A copy of the letter notifying you that the leave has been approved by the Provost.

Application and Review Procedure
Submit the application and encompassing documents online.
One copy is sufficient. Developmental Leave Travel and Materials Award requests may be made any time after the leave has been approved by the Provost and before your leave begins. Because these funds are limited, however, it is best to apply as early as possible.
Developmental Leave Travel and Materials Award recipients are asked to file a final report on their grant activity after the funds have been spent. Final reports are generally due within six months of completion. However, if the faculty member is applying for another grant, the report must be filed before the new grant proposal can be acted on.
