Centre for Leadership and Learning

The Centre for Leadership in Learning (CLL) is a resource for everyone who teaches at McMaster University. CLL provides support for small and large projects designed to enhance the quality of students’ learning. Applications for small teaching and learning projects requiring no more than $1,000 may be submitted at any time during the year. Projects requiring more than $1000 are considered large projects and are subject to an annual competition. The deadline for applications is typically the end of February each year with the results of the competition announced in April.

Funding is not available from CLL to support educational research.
