Captioning Grant application process opens July 17

Applications for the NC State Captioning Grant for fall semester courses will be accepted on Monday, July 17 through Thursday, Aug. 31.

This grant provides funds for faculty to obtain captions for instructional videos used in their online, blended and face-to-face courses. In addition to providing content to people with hearing impairments, captions create a learning environment that supports Universal Design for Learning.

Faculty members may apply for funding to caption videos:

  • when a student with a disability requiring an accommodation for captioning registers in a course that contains video, or
  • when proactively captioning videos to enhance the learning environment for all students.

Faculty using their own videos as a central part of their pedagogy are highly encouraged to apply for the grant.

To apply, please complete the Captioning Grant Application Form by Aug. 31. Applications to meet the needs of a student requiring this accommodation will be processed immediately.
