The CFCP invites proposals from Emory faculty, administrators and staff to increase and sustain community engaged learning and scholarship opportunities for students across Emory's nine academic units.
Community Engaged Learning Initiatives imagine how community engaged pedagogy can be leveraged to assist neighborhood groups, nonprofit organizations, philanthropic entities, and government agencies with addressing critical community needs in Metro Atlanta. At the same time, these courses and research projects should strengthen students' sense of citizenship, understanding of community issues, application of knowledge to real world problem solving, and ability to deepen their connections with community and university over time.
There is one round of funding per year, and awards are available for three levels of activity:
Planning: Supporting the development or redesign of curricular components featuring community-engaged learning and scholarship activities. Up to $10,000 with a 25% match requirement.
Capacity Strengthening: Enhancing the capacity of faculty to employ community-engaged learning pedagogy and/or community-engaged research methodologies (see also Faculty Fellows Program) and securing the necessary supportive infrastructure. Up to $50,000 with a 50% match requirement.
Implementation: Offering and sustaining new or expanded community-engaged learning and scholarship activities for a significant number of students within or across academic units, departments, and disciplines. Up to $80,000 with a 50% match requirement.
