The inaugural HILT Grants program was designed to catalyze innovative activities and promote effective learning and teaching across the University. Harvard faculty, students, deans, administrators, and postdoctoral researchers with instructional roles were eligible to apply for funding of up to $50K, individually or as groups. Proposals were evaluated based on the degree to which they were innovative (enabling new educational practices and policies), evidence-based (grounded in evidence beyond intuition or anecdote), and extendable (worth sharing, not singular solutions to narrow problems). A Faculty Selection Committee chose proposals that included a mixture of these qualities and emphasized extendability in their decision-making process.
