IATL'S Project Support
We have paused accepting new applications for Project Support through 31 July 2022.
Applications will only be accepted if the applicant has already held a consultation meeting with IATL. We will begin holding consultations about new proposals in June, and accepting new applications for funding from 1 August 2022.
As a global community, changing circumstances have inspired many of us to reflect more deeply than ever on the importance of cultivating community and imagining possible futures for education. IATL offers the opportunity to apply for project support, including funding, to both students and staff to develop innovative approaches to fostering community and imagining the future of learning at Warwick. Students can also apply for funding to develop research and performances.
How can IATL support you to foster learning and community now,
and to reimagine the future of learning and community at Warwick?
We have introduced a rolling deadline for all applications. We normally aim to notify you of the decision of the approval panel within 20 working days of submission of the application form. However, the turn around time will be longer for applications submitted around/during the Easter and Christmas breaks (when the University is closed for an extended period) and for applications submitted during the summer vacation (when staff are on leave). It may also take longer if you have not provided enough information for the panel to reach an informed decision, so please give as much relevant detail as possible. Please bear in mind that, due to institutional financial processes, it can take a further 14 days for funds to be available to you. This should be reflected in your project start date. Proposed student projects must be completed within 3 months after graduation at the latest, and this should also be reflected in the application.Link opens in a new window
How to apply
Apply for Project Support
IATL is inviting applications for project support from both students and staff which explore ways of fostering community and reimagining the future of learning at Warwick. Students can also apply for funding for research and performance projects of up to £1500.
Through our project support, we seek to cultivate imaginative responses to current circumstances, and reimagine possible futures for education. We value the knowledge produced by staff and students at Warwick and invite both co-created and student-led applications. We particularly welcome applications that emphasise the sharing of learning and practice developed during the project with the wider Warwick community.
We'd particularly like to receive applications which introduce us to new ideas and practices, as well as ones grounded within our own strategic priorities. We aim to create and support an inclusive, diverse culture of innovation and a community in which we can all flourish. We welcome applications from all members of our Warwick community, and we are excited to learn from you. Please reach out for any support you need through the application process.
What project support can I apply for?
You can apply to IATL for up to £10,000. We encourage co-creation between staff and students for all projects. All projects over £1500, must include co-creation, with both students and staff working together on the project, and should engage with Warwick's education strategy. The higher the amount applied for, the more directly we expect projects to engage with Warwick's education strategy and priorities.
Projects under £1500 will be reviewed by our quick response panel, and you can normally expect a response within 10 working days. Projects between £1500 and £10,000 will go to our wider panel for review, so please allow a calendar month. In both cases, this may be longer outside of term time. Our panels include both staff and students.
Areas in which IATL shares practice include co-creation, interdisciplinarity, cultivating communities of learning, practices of teaching and learning, innovative assessment practices, student as researcher, wellbeing practices and international teaching and learning. If your application is successful, you will be connected with a named member of the IATL community who will discuss how they can support you. You do not need to request funding to apply for IATL project support.
