Service Learning Grants

The Service-Learning Grant was established by the Provost's office in Fall 2012 to encourage faculty to incorporate new service-learning opportunities for students into their courses. The grant of up to $500 can be used to assist with related expenses including transportation, supplies, permits, food (if service extends over a meal period), educational resources, registrations, entry fees or similar costs.

A Call for Applications for Fall 2018 courses will be available in April 2018. Stay tuned!
