Funding Opportunities

Bringing Theory to Practice requests proposals in the following two categories for its 2015-2017 funding cycle:

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
 
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.
 
ONLY deadline for Category II grant proposals: August 1, 2015
