Nashman Center Faculty Grants for Community-Engaged Scholarship (Proposals Due Jan 9, 2017)

The call for proposals for the Nashman Center’s annual faculty grants is available HERE. We encourage full-time or part-time faculty to propose an initiative for funding. 

Grant funding is available to support

  • Development of new service-learning courses (or redesigning existing courses to include service-learning)
  • Community-based participatory research
  • Evaluation of existing engaged research or teaching
  • Strategic planning for the intentional engagement of an entire academic department
  • Research on community-engaged scholarship
  • Individual or group professional development in community-engaged scholarship

Community-engaged scholarship includes teaching, research, or creative activities that occur in partnership with the community to both prepare active citizens and benefit the public good.

The Nashman Faculty Grants for Engaged Scholarship are designed to: promote and support engaged teaching and research; improve communication among faculty about engaged scholarship; and, support professional development opportunities related to engaged scholarship. 

The Nashman Center staff are happy to meet with you to discuss or help fine-tune your proposal ideas. Please email Wendy Wagner to schedule a time: wagnerw@gwu.edu.
