Call for Grants

Teaching and Learning Enhancement Funding Call

We are delighted to launch an open call for Teaching and Learning Enhancement funding. The call will be administered by the Office of the Vice President for Learning & Teaching (OVPLT) through CIRTL and which will give an opportunity to significantly enhance UCC’s learning and teaching activity.

The Strategic Alignment of Teaching and Learning Enhancement (SATLE) Fund 2024 is a joint initiative of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (‘the National Forum’) and the Higher Education Authority. Through this funding, UCC hopes to support projects with potential for significant impact on teaching and student learning at UCC.

This is an internal call, and CIRTL will coordinate all applications locally.

Projects are expected to align with one or more of the following themes:

  • Inclusive Learning, Teaching and Assessment
  • Digitally enabled Learning, Teaching and Assessment
  • Education for Sustainable Development
  • Academic Integrity
  • Delivering the Connected Curriculum – connecting students with research, SDGs, employers, entrepreneurship, and the world

Applicants are invited to apply for:

  • Smaller ‘seed-funding’ grants of up to €2,000 maximum per application. 
  • Larger grant applications for proposals of up to €15,000 maximum per application.


The deadline for applications is 5pm Thursday 28th March 2024. Late submissions will not be accepted.
