Interested in faculty funding? Undergraduate research is experiential learning!
Consider the following sources offered by Student Engagement and Career Development:
Faculty grants for Experiential Learning (available until funds are exhausted)
- Teaching authentic community-engaged learning courses demands additional effort, time, and resources. Often these experiences require extra materials, travel, and hands-on support. In response, Student Engagement and Career Development is pleased to provide small grants to instructors to alleviate the logistical and hard costs associated with teaching community-engaged learning courses.
- Faculty who teach undergraduate courses are encouraged to submit a grant proposal for up to $500, limit one proposal per faculty per year.
- We are looking for proposals that make clear how these funds will impact the students’ experience of their community-engaged learning course. Examples of eligible activities and requests include hard costs for materials, student travel, and wages for undergraduate preceptors.
- We will review applications on a rolling basis through June 1, 2023.
