The Libraries and ITS invite all current employees (including faculty,
instructional staff, and staff) to submit proposals for Swarthmore Projects
for Educational Exploration and Development (SPEED) support. SPEED awards
primarily consist of dedicated support from software developers,
librarians, academic technologists, and student interns for an eight-week
period of project development in June and July 2019.
With your SPEED project team’s help, you can create a new digital object,
resource, or data visualization that enhances Swarthmore’s vision of access
and inclusion, academics, and education for the common good.
Successful projects include a clear focus and a scope that can be completed
within eight weeks.

staff members before applying.
