The Thomas D. Dee II Endowment was established to provide funds for the improvement of teaching in the College of Fine Arts and the College of Humanities at the University of Utah. The Council of Dee Fellows, a representative group of faculty members nominated by the Colleges and elected by the Council, distributes income from the endowment annually in the form of grants.
The Council of Dee Fellows is now inviting applications for Dee Grant Awards. The funding period for grants awarded in the 2017-18 funding cycle is July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. Proposals for projects that do not fall within the funding period will not be considered. The Dee Council invites applications from individual faculty or small groups of faculty for projects with broad impact on teaching and/or curriculum at either the undergraduate or the graduate level, and are especially interested in innovative projects. Proposals funded in recent years have ranged from $1,000 to $12,000.
