The Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service supports faculty and students in their community engaged scholarly endeavors through a variety of grants, prizes and fellowships.
Funding is available to support community-based participatory research, the development of community engaged scholarship courses, engaged department strategic planning, and professional development opportunities such as conferences or symposia. Proposals are due February 15th, annually.
