Course Development Minigrant Opportunity

The School District of Philadelphia is ramping up the quality and academic rigor associated with the state-mandated “Senior Project.” PHENND has been asked by the District to match each participating school with a university partner. These partners will provide project mentors and other resources to help the schools and students succeed.

To that end, PHENND is recruiting faculty from area campuses wishing to partner with selected high schools on the Senior Project Initiative. We are looking for faculty who will teach a service-learning course in Fall 2009 and/or Spring 2010 semesters using the Senior Project Initiative as a major service partnership for the course. Proposals from a variety of disciplines are encouraged.

Application Process and Deadlines

An unlimited number of faculty may apply to participate in the Summer Institute. Additionally, up to four faculty will receive $2000 stipends as compensation for time spent designing (or revising as the case may be) courses for this project. Applications are available now and due March 31, 2009.
