Missouri Campus Compact Micro-Grant Proposals for Individual Faculty

A Call for
Missouri Campus Compact Grant Proposals
Submissions Due to MOCC by May 20, 2009

UMSL Procedures for submitting the Campus Compact mini-grants.

Missouri Campus Compact will offer micro-grants of up to $300 for proposals regarding the development of new civic engagement projects by individual faculty members that seek to educate, create, or enhance the civic engagement of students for the 2009-2010 academic year. Faculty members may only submit one proposal.

The goal of this micro-grant program is to provide an opportunity for faculty members to explore new projects and avenues in civic engagement. This grant is not limited to service-learning, but to civic engagement initiatives including service-learning, community service, and civic action (including Constitution Day and Voter Initiatives). All projects must be non-partisan - promotion of one political party over another will not be funded. A goal of this grant program, is to foster engaged citizenship in students as a means to a healthier democracy.

More information about this opportunity is available from Missouri Campus Compact. Application materials, including eligibility requirements, evaluation criteria, and proposal format may be downloaded.
