The USF Office of Community Engagement and Partnerships’ (OCEP) Research That Matters Faculty–Community Partner Grant Program seeks to promote activities that involve partnerships between USF and the broader community. OCEP administers a small grant program to provide support for research that focuses on community identified issues, and is intended to support pilot work on a research project that has the potential for a long lasting impact and the possibility to draw funding from external sources.
To receive funding, proposed research must meet the following criteria: (1) include partnerships in the community; (2) demonstrate the potential to lead to longer-lasting community engaged activities; (3) include a rigorous and feasible research design; and (4) demonstrate the potential to receive external funding. OCEP welcomes and encourages applications from all disciplines and departments within USF. Click here to apply.
Students from the College of Arts and Sciences who have participated in one or more community-based learning courses can apply for an AT&T scholarship. The contact for this program is Robin Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org). For more information on the program, click here: AT&T Scholarship package.
We are making funds available to service learning faculty to cover actual expenses incurred in teaching a service learning course.
