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 2018. Mini-Grant Applications for Spring will be reviewed beginning February 2019.
