Discretionary Seedcorn Funding (DSF)

Discretionary Seedcorn Funding (DSF) provides staff with an opportunity to access responsive and agile short-term project funding to explore and experiment in new areas of teaching and learning which complement BILT’s priorities and the University’s Education Strategy.
