ATC awards grants to faculty members to facilitate the use and evaluation of new software, hardware, apps, and/or one-time subscriptions or licenses for instruction or other teaching activities. ATC grants are designed for the purpose of evaluating the integration of the technology into the recipient’s teaching. The goal of ATC grants is to allow the recipient the opportunity to evaluate an item of technology for its ability to enhance a course or courses. Submissions for standard grants are accepted by ATC on a continuing basis from planning week to April 1st of the same academic year.

A Small Grant form is available for faculty who want to purchase new software, apps, one-time subscriptions, or licenses totaling $100 or less.
