Skylight directly funds small teaching and learning enhancement projects through annual competitions, and offers early internal feedback on potential UBC TLEF submissions.
Skylight Development Grants
Skylight Development Grants provide up to $5,000 in matching funds for projects that by their scale or focus are unlikely to receive TLEF funding, but would significantly benefit undergraduate or graduate teaching and learning.
Science Academic Equipment Fund
UBC Science provides funding of up to $100,000 a year for academic equipment that supports teaching and learning. Funding is allocated through an annual competition announced in February.
Early TLEF Feedback
Skylight offers early internal feedback on potential UBC Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund submissions within the Faculty. We help applicants connect with similar projects, and provide pedagogical, technical, evaluation and project consultations.
Additional Funding Opportunities
Funding Opportunities Across UBC
UBC offers many opportunities for funding that can be used to support teaching and learning projects.
Science Student Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Funds
As part of the Student Diversity Initiative at UBC Science (SDI @ Science), the Equity & Inclusion Office (EIO) has generously provided one-time funds to support student equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) activities in UBC Science. The funds will be used to support proposals aiming to bring people together for the exchange of ideas and best practices in teaching and learning, and to build capacity addressing student EDI issues in UBC Science through the planning and delivery of events and hosting speakers.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Fellows Program
The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Fellows Program will support faculty and staff to develop expertise in UDL through a cohort-based professional development program comprising a series of facilitated workshops, online modules, and a project-focused set of activities to help participants use UDL principles to redesign their courses to be more inclusive and accessible.
