Call for Proposals: Morgridge Match Grant Program - Spring 2013 (due February 15)

December 11, 2012

Funded by a generous gift from John and Tashia Morgridge in 2009, this $5 million and five year challenge grant aims to promote community and university partnerships.  

The challenge grant will match up to 50% of non-101 funding (up to $50,000 per project), including new awards to existing projects, following a competitive grant review process. The program will award up to $300,000 for the Spring 2013 competition. 

The Morgridge Match Grant Program will consider projects that focus on engaged scholarship (academically-based service learning and/or community-based research) at the UW-Madison.  

Service learning courses must meet the University Academic Planning Council's approved Service Learning Guidelines and be approved for listing in the Course Guide. Proposals must demonstrate substantive community partner involvement in project development and implementation. The program will match that portion of the primary funding source that specifically relates to service learning or community-based research. Projects may focus on local, regional, or international issues for a period not to exceed two years.

The application deadline is 5pm CST Friday, February 15, 2013.
