Student Success Grant

Provost’s Micro-Grant Program for Student Success

The Provost’s Micro-Grant Program for Student Success is designed to improve students’ retention, persistence and graduation rates by implementing new and innovative strategies that would enhance TTU students’ abilities to graduate within a four-year period.

All faculty, staff, administrators, and students are invited to submit proposals that would improve students’ success.

As part of this plan, a Student Success Grant committee will evaluate proposals from the TTU faculty, staff and students that would address the various solutions to bottlenecks that impede student progress. During the academic year 2014/2015, ten $5,000 awards will be granted to individuals who submit a meritorious proposal as determined by the Committee. Researching new concepts or implementing proven student success methodologies would be the appropriate topics for these proposals. For example,

  • Peer or faculty-based mentoring programs;
  • Innovative delivery strategies for tutoring and other academic services; or
  • Increasing student engagement in on-campus activities and services.

The deadline for a Spring semester 2014 grant is March 28, 2014, and the funds will become available on August 1, 2014.

The deadline for a Fall semester 2014 grant is October 25, 2014, and the funds will become available on January 2, 2015.
