Richard Stockton College offers Grants for Community Engaged Scholarship. The proposal reads:
This proposal intends to contribute to Stockton’s strategic focus on strengthening our community engagement.
It will add to the efforts for maintaining our Carnegie Classification and respond to the challenge to align civic
and community engagement with our mission and institutional effectiveness. As far as this program can support
these initiatives, the program’s goals include the following:
1) deepen relationships with community partners;
2) effect change by making positive impacts in our local community;
3) document and gather evidence for engaged public scholarship that meets high standards; and
4) differentiate civically focused scholarship from service.
In addition to these effects, the success of this new support program will add value to Stockton’s mission to
commit “to the positive development of southern New Jersey.”
Proposals to the Scholarship of Engagement Fund must fall into the category of Community Engagement Impact
Research or Community-engaged Research. A pot of $50,000 is available to fund projects which involve community
partners and focus on engagement. Projects should be organized in the Spring semester and unfold during the
summer, FY16. Projects may span 2 fiscal years.
Deadline for proposals is 5:00pm, November 17, 2014.
