Explorance’s Chief Community Engagement Officer Yeona Jang spoke about the grant review process for this year:

“On behalf of Explorance, I would like to express our gratitude to all researchers in the Bluenotes Community who applied for our 2023 Explorance Faculty Research Grants to advance the research on teaching effectiveness and student success with use of evaluation and assessment data.  We also want to thank Robert Goldstein, Vice Provost in the University of Louisville & the chair of the review committee, and the review committee members for their dedication and hard work in carrying out the rigorous double-anonymous review process. I’m excited to learn about these research projects in-person at the Bluenotes GLOBAL 2023 Conference where the Bluenotes Community institutions are coming together to celebrate its 10th anniversary as a community.”

Selecting This Year’s Recipients

The 2023 Faculty Grant Review Committee received a large number of applications from Bluenotes Community institutions worldwide.

Explorance anonymized each research grant application for review upon receipt by at least two members of our 31-person committee, comprised of faculty and administrators from Higher-Education institutions in the Bluenotes Community from around the world.

Explorance has committed a total of about $100,000 USD to be awarded to the Faculty Grant recipients.
