The Service-Learning Resource Centre has a variety of funding opportunities available to support service-learning ideas and course development needs.
Below is a brief summary of the available funds, with more details about each available on the Service-Learning website:
· Project seed money – up to $300 to support those looking to develop or expand service-learning related activities
· Community partner incentive – up to $1000 to develop or enhance relationships with community partners for service-learning related activities
· Service-Learning course incentive grants – up to $1500 for Service-Learning courses
Applications are now open for Service-Learning course incentive grants with a deadline of Friday, April 25 for adjudication in early May.
A question and answer session will be hosted Thursday, April 10 from 12 noon-1 p.m. in TH253 for anyone wishing to learn more about the grant, ask questions and discuss grant ideas.
The Service-Learning Resource Centre also provides support for those who wish to attend a service-learning related conference or professional development opportunity.
The following is a list of featured conferences (you may also request to attend a conference not listed here if you have one in mind), and to submit an application for a PD grant, which typically covers the cost of registration.
These are adjudicated on an ongoing basis and all other associated costs are the responsibility of the applicant.
Drop by the Service-Learning Resource Centre during business hours or contact Sandy Howe or ext. 4126 if you are interested in pursuing any of these opportunities.
