Teaching Advising and Mentoring Expense Grants

Office of the Provost and Dean of Faculties

TAME Grants Description


This program is limited to funding of up to $2,000 and is similar to the Research Expense Grant Program. TAME funds may be used for almost any expense related to the improvement of teaching, advising or mentoring of BC students. For instance, funds may be used for supplies or equipment not covered by departmental budgets or faculty development at teaching oriented workshops. These funds may not be used to attend research-oriented conferences; however, funds may be used to attend a teaching oriented workshop at a research conference.

Applications for the TAME program will be reviewed during the fall semester.


All full-time faculty are eligible for the TAME Grant.


Faculty should submit applications via online form by:

  • October 4, 2021 for fall semester funding

Once the faculty member has submitted the online application, the Internal Grants Manager will create a Google Drive Folder with all relevant applications to be shared with the appropriate chair and dean.

Chairs must complete all rankings by:

  • April 15, 2022 for fall semester funding

Deans must complete all rankings by:
