Funding Opportunities for Community-Based Learning

The Title III office is announcing two funding opportunities for faculty interested in Community-Based Learning (CBL):

1) CBL Course Development Grant: Grant funds may be requested to develop a new Community-Based Learning undergraduate course or to integrate a new Community-Based Learning component into an existing undergraduate course. Faculty are not yet expected to have a fully developed CBL course proposal at this point, but rather to propose an idea for a CBL course and to express a commitment to participating in a structured CBL course development process during Spring semester 2013. A team of two faculty members will split a $1,500 stipend or an individual faculty member will receive a $1,000 stipend. Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 28.

2) Professional Development in Community-Based Learning: Funding is available to support faculty in attending professional development activities (webinars, conferences, workshops, etc.) focused on Community-Based Learning. Activity should occur before Aug. 1, 2013, and a list of possible opportunities is available on the CBL website. Initial Application Deadline is Wed., Nov. 28. After that date, applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year until all funds have been distributed.

For more information, including the Call for Proposals and Applications for both types of funding, please see the CBL webpage.
