AI Maizey Grant

In an effort to make Maizey and ToolKit easier to access, CAEN has created the AI Maizey Grant. This initiative aims to help support faculty and staff with their implementation of Maizey or ToolKit in their courses. Either of these tools can be used by instructors to develop useful tools for their students. CAEN will help offset the cost of either tool with $200 awarded per course. Details of the grant and the application are outlined below.

What is the AI Maizey Grant?
The AI Maizey Grant provides funding for instructors to support the use of U-M Maizey or Toolkit in their course.

This grant is intended to support the use of Maizey or Toolkit for instruction. Applications are open to all College of Engineering faculty and staff that are instructing a course during the current academic year.


  • Awards will be capped at $200 per course with a total of $5,000 awarded in the 2023-24 academic year.
  • Funding will be awarded to cover the costs to run a Maizey or Toolkit instance for a specific course/section.
    • If multiple instructors apply for the same course/section, only one grant of $200 will be awarded.
  • Award recipients will be notified via email approximately two weeks after the grant application form is reviewed.
    • A short code will be provided to award recipients to charge their usage (up to $200).
  • Funding is not available to support faculty, staff or student salaries.

Expectations of Award Recipients
CAEN and CRLT-Engin staff will follow up with award recipients to learn about how effective the tool was in supporting their instructional goals. In addition, recipients will be asked to submit information for a follow-up survey.

Example of Cost

  • Example Prompt:
“Can you give me the complete text of the Gettysburg Address?”
  • Cost of prompt: Words: 11; Characters: 61; Tokens: 15
  • 61 characters/4 = 15 tokens
  • (15 tokens)(0.00003) = 0.0004575
  • Example Completion:
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. “But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us,that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion, that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
  • Cost of Completion: Words: 267; Characters: 1451; Tokens: 363
  • 1451 characters/4 = 363 tokens
  • (363 tokens)(0.00006) = $0.021765
  • Cost of example: creation cost: $0.04; prompt total cost: $0.02
  • Total cost of example: $0.04+$0.02=$0.06
