Funding Opportunities

Office of Teacher Education and Outreach

The Office of Teacher Education and Outreach is pleased to announce the Community Engagement Mini-Awards. These awards will support work that represents a commitment to reciprocal relationships that mutually benefit the community and university. Awards are intended to support partnership efforts with community agencies or organizations. Given the unique history of Wilmington, the University’s role in local and regional communities is important. Within the Watson College, our commitment to improving schools and society also extends nationally and internationally so proposals will also be accepted for national or international work. Examples of activities that may be funded in a proposed project include stipends paid to facilitators for workshops hosted by a community organization, pre-paid museum entry fees for a class or student group, and travel (including international). Instructional faculty may request up to $2,000 and must collaborate with a community agency as part of the project. Please review the RFP prior to submitting a proposal. Proposals are due by the end of November and should be submitted to Kerri Fowler at fowlerk@uncw.edu.
