Northwest Missouri State University


Fellowship and Grants

The CITE Office offers Northwest faculty funding opportunities for the development of online and blended courses. CITE seeks proposals from individual and teams of faculty members to develop online undergraduate and graduate courses and graduate-level blended courses. Our goal is to increase access to Northwest students both on and off campus to high quality courses that enrich the students' learning experiences.

The call for proposals is normally sent out in mid-November via e-mail. Course development typically takes place during the following summer months. Courses involved in the project are expected to incorporate appropriate innovative technologies, with special emphasis on World Wide Web-based materials.

With online undergraduate and graduate courses, individual faculty members developing such courses will be supported at a stipened equal to 2.5% of their yearly salary multiplied by the number of credit hours associated with the course.

The stipend associated with the development of graduate-level blended courses for delivery to Northwest's Kansas City and/or St. Joe centers is set at 1.5% of the faculty member's yearly salary multiplied by the number of credit hours associated with the course.

Faculty who receive a CITE Fellowship are expected to participate in a short series of workshops (during the spring trimester) that will provide them with an opportunity to learn with and from leaders in online learning and instructional technology and from other participants in the CITE Fellowship program.
