DELTA Grants is a competitive awards program for NC State faculty and staff. We are seeking collaborative partners from diverse disciplines across campus for the 2020-2021 DELTA Grants cycle. Partners will work with staff to provide innovative solutions for educational challenges.

Award recipients whose projects are accepted for funding receive DELTA personnel support for the planning, design and development of online and distance education courses, blended learning, traditional courses, projects and faculty peer outreach assistance.

What Types of DELTA Grants are Available?

Rapid Design

  • The Rapid Design grant is intended for faculty who need guidance and templates to produce an Online and Distance Education course on a quick timeline (3-4 months).
  • Provides faculty a series of three targeted, one-to-one consultations to help guide faculty through the application of DELTA-developed templates and step-by-step guides to ensure they have the tools and skills necessary to design or redesign their courses.

Critical Path Course Redesign

  • Provides support for the full or partial redesign of critical path, large enrollment courses required for graduation.

Faculty Fellows

  • Faculty Fellows grants sponsor NC State faculty to work with DELTA to share their experience teaching and learning with technology, allowing the campus community to benefit from their expertise.

Online and Distance Education

  • Provides design and development support for a new ODE course or the creation of instructional materials for revision of an established course.

Blended Learning

  • Provides design and development of instructional materials for environments combining face-to-face and online learning.


  • Allows faculty to investigate a unique instructional challenge in an existing course or exploration of targeted emerging technologies (think virtual reality, augmented reality and more).
