Funding Resources


Service Learning Mini-Grants

The primary aim of the mini-grant program is to promote the development of service learning scholarship -- both teaching and research -- at MSU Denver.

Faculty may apply for funding to cover the expenses ($500 max) associated with the following:

  • The service learning projects they have chosen to incorporate into their courses.
  • The presentation of their service learning scholarship at a conference or their attendance at a conference with a service learning focus.

Fall mini grants will be reviewed beginning September 25, 2017.  Mini-Grant Applications for Spring will be reviewed beginning February 23, 2018.

 Community-based Research Fellows Grants

The Community-based Research Fellows Program is a competitive program with a faculty-initiated application process.  Faculty members identify community partners and student researchers at the time of application.  Applications indicate how the CBR project contributes to the faculty member’s scholarship, deepens the student’s learning, and builds the community partner’s capacity.

Grants provide up to $1000 for a stipend for a student research assistant and $250 for research related funds. Deadline for applications is September 25, 2017.
