CCNYPA Request for Applications: Regional Consortia Mini-Grants for Community Engagement 2019-20

Posted on July 23, 2019

CCNYPA is pleased to announce the availability of fifteen regional consortia mini-grants up to $1500 each to support regional efforts to cultivate civic imagination and deepen community engagement either among institutions and/or with community partners. Application deadline September 13, 2019 or January 13, 2020.

Aligned with CCNYPA’s mission, mini-grants should focus on one of these types: Catalyst Grants, Starter Grants, and Co-Sponsorship Grants. Each of these build on higher education’s capacity to cultivate civic imagination, deepen civic and community engagement, and strengthen CCNYPA’s regional communities.

All three types of mini-grants will accomplish this through one of the following focus areas:

1) Professional development for campus leaders such as center directors, staff, faculty, or students. Topics may include faculty development for course design for incorporating civic learning, service-learning, or community-based learning, and/or community-based research initiatives, enhancing promotion and tenure policies to value community engaged research, global service-learning, scholarship of engagement, student voter engagement, deliberative dialogue.

2) Issue-focused convening which highlights a community-identified need and gathers multiple stakeholders for synchronizing efforts to enhance community & economic development, such as: the opioid epidemic, food access & security, community gardens, refugee/immigrant integration.

3) Higher education sector gatherings, such as Research 1 or Community College institutions.
