The maximum amount that may be requested for any single Instructional Integration Award is $10,000 (*$5,000 for mini-sabbaticals) and funding of multiple awards/category is anticipated. Funds will be awarded for one year. Unexpended award balances may be carried forward, following review and approval.

Allowable budget lines are for equipment, travel/training expenses (including participation in short training courses or longer term "mini-sabbaticals"*), expenses associated with consultants/speakers/visiting scholars, expenses associated with hosting a conference or symposium, supplies and materials, or contractual service necessary to successfully address collaborative project objectives.
