2015 - 2017 Funding Cycle (now closed)

Category I: Well-Being Seminar Grants

Well-Being Seminar Grants up to $1,000 to provide support for campus-wide planning discussions (seminars) that give focused attention to a particular dimension of the well-being of those involved (students, faculty, or other leaders) in creating and maintaining an engaged culture for learning. Seminars should deepen participants’ understanding of the institution’s commitment to whole-person development and the learning-related policies and practices, both inside and outside the curriculum, that support such endeavors.

First deadline for Category I grant proposals: September 15, 2015

Second deadline for Category I grant proposals: January 15, 2016

Please submit your proposals both as a hard copy delivered to our office (1818 R Street, NW Washington DC, 20009) prior to the date above, and as an electronic submission through our website.
 

Category II: Well-Being Research Project Grants

Well-Being Research Project Grants up to $10,000, plus institutional matching, to implement and assess a campus-based two-year research project that gives focused attention to the well-being of students, particularly those traditionally underserved by higher education. Projects should, through the gathering of evidence, provide justification for best practices for deepening and sustaining the institution’s commitment to whole-person development.
