The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning

The Edward Ginsberg Center is delighted to share a new funding opportunity for community-engaged teaching and research. 

Collective Action for Increased Impact: 

The Ginsberg Center is partnering with the Vice Provost for Global Engagement and Interdisciplinary Academic Affairs, the Office of Research, and Poverty Solutions for a collaborative funding model encouraging -- and practicing -- collective action to increase our impact in service to the public good. This opportunity seeks to support the community-engaged work of tenure and tenure track, research, and clinical faculty. The Ginsberg Center expects to award up to $200,000 this year. 

Focused on Community Priorities:  

We seek to engage faculty from the Ann Arbor campus interested in advancing their scholarship while enhancing the capacity of social sector community partners and communities through substantial, reciprocal engagement. We invite teaching, research, and other educational proposals focused on advancing equity and decreasing economic and racial segregation in Washtenaw County, Detroit, and other Southeast Michigan communities, especially in the areas of Education, Employment, and Housing.

We invite you to apply and also share this opportunity with interested colleagues!
