The Alumni Class Funds Seek Proposals
for Teaching and Education Enhancements


The Office of Faculty Support is requesting proposals for projects for the 2016-2017 academic year that improve the quality of teaching, enrich students’ learning experiences, and uphold the tradition of innovation at the Institute. The Alumni Class Funds are comprised of gifts from the classes of 1951, 1955, 1972, and 1999.

Over the past 20 years more than 200 projects were made possible through the generous assistance of The Alumni Class Funds. These projects have had substantial impact on education both inside and outside MIT. Grants typically range from $10,000 to $50,000 and cover a wide variety of creative curricular and pedagogical projects. Larger scale projects will also be considered, as well as project renewals and multiple year projects, but funding commitments will be made on a year-by-year basis.

Proposals are due on Friday, January 29, 2016. Guidelines, forms, instructions, and descriptions of previously funded projects can be found at Please contact Curriculum and Faculty Support at 617-253-6776 or for more information.
