Selkregg Award

The Selkregg Community Engagement & Service Learning Award of $5,000 supports faculty to develop community-based research, creative activity, and course-based service-learning projects. The Award seeks to encourage, inspire, and reward faculty at UAA for engaged scholarship that creates and sustains our community partnerships. Purposes of the award are to recognize community engagement projects with significant discipline-based scholarship, community partnership, and creativity in project design and implementation.  The proposed projects should ultimately aim to improve the quality of life for Alaska residents and develop civic leadership, democracy, and social justice on campus and in the community.

Faculty proposals are now being accepted for the 2017 Selkregg Community Engagement and Service Learning Award. Deadline is Friday, February 24, 2017 by 12:00 p.m.
