Grant Information & Application
NTR Teaching grants are intended to support development of new teaching materials and expertise in the areas of negotiation, conflict, and dispute resolution. For example, a teaching grant might be used to support research and development of a new multi-media exercise. It might be used to support a teaching internship with an experienced teacher, learning how to design a course, evaluate students, pace a class, use new classroom resources (such as NTR’s Peer Feedback resource, or its Culture and Negotiation Survey resource), or a new platform such as idecisiongames.com.
NTR teaching grants are open to scholars at any career stage. If the proposal is for a residency at another institution, the applicant and the residency host must submit jointly.

NTR Teaching Grant Internship Host Guidelines
- Hosts should have significant past experience teaching negotiation, conflict, and/or dispute resolution, and be teaching during the period of the internship.
- Hosts’ institutions are expected to provide support for the intern in obtaining any necessary visas, and health insurance. If home country health care will not extend coverage, NTR funds may be used for health insurance. Hosts are expected to welcome the resident and invite the resident to meet regularly with the host and the host’s teaching assistants during the period of planning for, delivering, and grading the class.
- NTR Teaching Interns should not be treated as a free teaching assistant with full responsibility for getting materials to students or grading. However, learning how to write an exam, how to grade, and how to give student feedback are important elements of learning how to teach negotiation, conflict, and dispute resolution.
