Grants, Stipends & Awards

CEE currently offers grants for travel to educational conferences and stipends for faculty development. These funds are available to promote research and scholarship as well as to help CEE enhance its programs by giving faculty the opportunity to attend leading conferences on higher education and share information with their colleagues when they return to USD. Additionally, we annually honor a USD faculty member with the Innovation in Experiential Education (IEE) Award.
