Internal Seed Grant

The University of Wyoming Literacy Research Center and Clinic (LRCC) Internal Seed Grant program provides small literacy related grants for University of Wyoming faculty, up to a maximum of $10,000, for promising research that addresses significant questions for the discipline of literacy research and practice and supports teaching and learning in Wyoming.  It is the intent that such grants will provide researchers with the opportunity to develop important perspectives on the literacy field.
Grant studies may be carried out using any research methodology or approach so long as the focus of the project is on research in literacy or teacher preparation for literacy instruction.  Activities such as developing new programs or instructional materials are eligible for funding as long as these activities are necessary for the conduct of the research and the grant writer clearly articulates how and why such activities are necessary for the conduct of research.
For more information on grant eligibility, submissions, and deadlines please download the following guideline.
