"The Strategic Framework calls Notre Dame to be the leading global Catholic research university, on par with but distinct from the world’s best private universities," said John T. McGreevy, the Charles and Jill Fischer Provost and Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at Notre Dame. "This University-wide grant program will accelerate progress toward this vision and enable even more faculty and students to engage in the key themes of the Strategic Framework."

The Strategic Framework's themes include arts, climate and sustainability, data and computational science, democracy, ethics, global Catholicism, health and well-being, and poverty. Proposals are welcome on any themes identified in the framework, though particular themes of interest for 2024 are democracy, ethics, and poverty. Future iterations of this grant program may focus on other themes in the framework.

The program offers two types of grants—a research grant and a teaching grant.

  • Research grant awardees may receive up to $50,000 per year ($100,000 per year for multi-disciplinary collaborative grants) to pursue new research or produce new scholarship or creative endeavors.
  • Teaching grant awardees may receive up to $10,000 per year ($15,000 per year for collaborative grants) to create new courses or adapt existing courses. They will partner with ND Learning to enhance each new course's pedagogical approach, the design of digital teaching assets, and/or the course evaluation process.

Both the research and teaching grants will be for a duration of two years.

Vice President and Associate Provost for Academic Strategy David Go said, “This new program is an exciting opportunity for faculty to enhance or evolve their research or teaching to align with University-wide priorities.” Go, who is also the Viola D. Hank Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering added, “It is a great way to answer the Strategic Framework’s call for Notre Dame to ‘think as an institution.’ I encourage all interested faculty members to apply.”
