Course Development Grant Applications Open

March 14, 2019

The Center for Science and Society is excited to open its sixth application cycle of course development grants for undergraduate and graduate courses. The aim is to introduce courses that can be offered within current departmental structures, or as part of already-existing majors and concentrations, that bring significant discussion of science and society into these offerings. Proposals are welcome from all Core Lecturers and tenured or tenure-track faculty Columbia University and Barnard College.

Past course development grants include: 

  • A service learning workshop that explores the social implications of race on health within the classroom and beyond.
  • A laboratory class that traces scientific illustration in archaeological work and explores new directions for these traditional techniques.
  • An introductory course on the history of cybernetics (the science of communication and control) across the Iron Curtain.  

You can learn more about our past course development grants by visiting the Course Development Overview page

Course Development Grant proposals are due April 22, 2019. For additional details, please visit the Call for Proposals.
