The MLFTC internal grants program, coordinated by Scholarly Initiatives in the Office of Scholarship and Innovation, supports the diverse research of all full-time faculty members. The program offers four funding streams.
Research grants support individual or group research projects intended to have a clear, visible impact such as securing external grant funding or contributing towards publications. The internal research grants program is competitive with proposals evaluated by a team of peers on key criteria: intellectual merit, feasibility, and promise of impact. Call for proposals are released each spring semester, with awards and funding decisions made to align with the upcoming fiscal year.

Recurring monthly opportunity for all full-time MLFTC faculty to apply for funds to cover small costs that may arise during ongoing research projects. Faculty can apply for these funds to be used for purchasing items such as software, renewing site licenses, acquiring audio or video recorders, transcription service, etc., for use in existing research projects. See a list of past recipients and their projects.
Fellowships are collaborative funding partnerships between Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and other colleges and centers at ASU to support faculty research and the interdisciplinary research mission of both the college and university.
Learning Communities are modest funding opportunities to support informal groups of faculty, staff and graduate students to convene around a topic of shared interest with an overarching goal to foster engagement and conversation around important topics through the school year.
