Applications Now CLOsed for LEPs under Initiative Type 001/19

Focus on Supporting and Highlighting the Value of Teaching and Learning Enhancement within Higher Education Institutions

This T&L Initiative funding stream responds to identified needs of higher education institutions, specifically from those with responsibility for driving teaching and learning enhancement at a local level. The aim of this T&L Initiative funding stream is to stimulate small-scale local enhancement initiatives, providing an opportunity for those who have had limited engagement to date.


The funding will be used to seed fund a number of learning enhancement projects (LEPs) to support engagement with teaching and learning enhancement by individuals or small teams within an institution.


CIT is now inviting applications from across all disciplines, with an indicative budget is €20,000 –25,000, under this strand (approx. 6 projects will be funded).


Only applications submitted via our online application form,available here, will be considered - however, a template has been developed for the convenience of project leads to help in the preparation of applications, which is available here. In addition, an outline of the assessment criteria that will be used by the external panel tasked with reviewing applications is available here.
