Community Engagement

Grant Opportunities


Dear full- and part-time faculty:

We are pleased to announce the Spring 2020 Grant Cycle from the Office of Community Engagement.

We seek proposals for the following grant opportunities:

We are excited to offer the new SEED/Mentorship grant: faculty can apply for traditional SEED grants, and they can also select the "mentorship" option, that will include, along with grant money, support and consultation with seasoned community engaged faculty in a related discipline who can help faculty design, develop, and implement new community-based teaching and research opportunities.

We will host a workshop for applying to these grants in early October (details forthcoming), and those who attend will receive extra points on their grant application rubric.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Danielle Spratt, Director of Faculty Engagement, at danielle.spratt@


Deadline: October 15th by 5:00pm to communityengagement@
