Service Learning Funding Opportunities
The Teaching, Learning and Professional Development Center is restructuring the ways in which we offer supplemental support to our faculty. Beginning with the Fall 2019 semester, the following funding opportunities will be available to all service learning faculty. Please note that although there is not a deadline for applications, funding for each area is limited and preference will be given to new applicants as well as current or most recent Service Learning Faculty Fellows.
Service Learning Assistant
We know that service learning is an intensive pedagogy and we would like to support you. Similarly, we value the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and, if you are doing research on your service learning course, we would like to assist you. As long as funds are available, the TLPDC is committed to funding either a graduate or undergraduate student to assist you in the development, redesign, or implementation of a service learning course or in the execution of service learning research. Students are not allowed to work more than 10 hours per week for up to 15 weeks and are not allowed to be otherwise employed on campus at the time of their service learning appointment.
Service Learning Conference/Presentation Travel
The TLPDC values the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and we would like to support faculty who are interested in presenting about their service learning experiences through conference presentations. If you will be presenting on your service learning and need financial support to aid in your travel, please complete the Conference/Presentation Travel application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Service Learning Project Support
The TLPDC recognizes that service learning courses sometimes create a financial burden for the faculty and/or students involved in the service learning project and we would like to help offset any costs you might incur. To provide funding for project supplies, we must follow university protocol and it can sometimes take additional time for purchasing and procurement.
