April 20, 2015 | New Funding Available from Bringing Theory to Practice

BTtoP announces two levels of funding available for the 2016 and 2017 academic years. View the full Request for Proposals here: Funding Opportunities.

Since 2003, over 460 grants at varying levels have been awarded to diverse colleges and universities. For the July 2015-June 2017 funding cycle, proposals are requested in the following categories:

Category I: Well-Being Seminar Grants

Seminar Grants (up to $1,000) 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. The first deadline for Seminar Grant proposals is September 15, 2015.

Category II: Well-Being Research Project Grants

Research Project Grants (up to $10,000, plus institutional matching) should implement and assess a campus-based, two-year research project that focuses on the well-being of students, particularly those traditionally underserved by higher education. Projects should, through the gathering of evidence, provide justification for best practices that deepen and sustain the institution’s commitment to whole-person development. The deadline for Research Project Grant proposals is August 1, 2015.


You can find all of the details and supporting materials in the Funding Opportunities section of our website.

We look forward to your proposal.
