by Michelle Saport |
Proposals due: Monday, Jan. 28, 2013
The Center for Community Engagement & Learning (CCEL) is accepting proposals for two
community-engaged project awards. The application deadline for both awards is Jan.
Visit the CCEL website for more information and to download the applications.
Dr. Alex Hills Engineering & Civic Engagement Award
UAA undergraduates in engineering are encouraged to apply for this $2,500 award to disseminate engineering knowledge and practice for the benefit of society. The award recipient will initiate a service project that solves engineering and technology-based problems in partnership with local organizations and under the supervision of a faculty mentor.
Second Bridge Scholarship Award
This award of up to $2,000 encourages UAA undergraduates enrolled in any degree-seeking program to pursue a structured but non-traditional educational experience in service learning. Students who engaged in a study-abroad program or a domestic community-engaged program crossed a "first bridge" that expanded their educational horizons. Crossing the "second bridge" requires a commitment to either an international setting or a domestic setting that will push the boundaries of traditional education, meet a community need and afford a richer and deeper experience for the student.
