The Community Engagement Fund is intended to support faculty in Wilkinson College with collaborative, action-based, service learning in community partnerships. This grant is intended to fund those proposals which have a high potential for enhancing and significantly contributing to the University’s service mission, particularly for the citizens of Southern California. This fund may support activities of a primary applicant, or projects which involve other faculty, staff, and students (students must be under the supervision of a faculty member).
Community Engagement, within this fund, is defined as the new applications of faculty skills within a community or organization, programs to apply or interpret research results to a local or general population, and/or development of new or existing projects on subjects relating to state needs, and which may encourage service learning projects. Applicants must demonstrate an established relationship with palpable results. Seed funding is available for thoroughly designed projects with demonstrable results.
Funding from this program is intended to encourage development of additional support for future projects. The Community Engagement Fund will support requests up to $5,000. A final report is required upon close of funding period.
