Start Your Innovation.
Do opportunities for an innovative approach to your work inspire you to dream about possibilities and explore ways to make them happen? Do you have an innovation in mind that you would like to bring to fruition? UNC Greensboro’s School of Education invests in innovative educational ideas, launching and supporting their development to transform challenges into successes.
We recognize that innovation sometimes requires some assistance to get started and we have two awards to help great ideas move forward. Our Idea Starter Award ranges from $1,000 – $3,000, providing funds to help you begin working on your plan and the steps you’ll need to move it forward. Our Idea Development Award, up to $10,000, matures innovation ideas with demonstrated merit. For example, The Idea Development Award helped Let’s Move in Libraries develop a website to promote the addition of health-related programming for patrons of local libraries across the US.
An important component of innovation is to track users’ engagement with your idea. How will the impact of your work be measured? The number of visitors to your website? How many people participate in your professional development activity?
