The President’s Administrative Innovation Fund was created to catalyze administrative innovation and collaboration across Harvard by investing in staff-generated, creative solutions that support our faculty, students and staff colleagues.
These grants could be used to explore a new idea or process, build a prototype, take an existing homegrown idea to the next level, bring in a subject-matter expert to design a solution, convene a ‘hackathon’, or be used in any number of creative ways. Emphasis is placed on novel, creative, and collaborative solutions that capitalize on value-creating opportunities or address known challenges.
Ideas funded will focus on:
- Innovation in academic administration;
- Innovation in service delivery; or
- Innovation in talent development
The fund will provide competitive grants to individuals and teams with innovative ideas or pilots for $2,000 to $15,000. There is a possibility that one or two exceptional projects could receive funding up to $25,000.
