The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning

Funding for Collective Impact

The Edward Ginsberg Center is again offering two funding opportunities for community-engaged teaching and research. In partnership with multiple units on campus, we offer a collaborative funding model encouraging -- and practicing -- collective action to increase our impact in service to the public good.  

Focused on Community Priorities We seek to engage faculty interested in advancing their scholarship while enhancing the capacity of social sector community partners and communities through substantial, reciprocal engagement. We invite teaching and research proposals focused on advancing equity and decreasing economic and racial disparities in Washtenaw County, Detroit, and other Southeast Michigan communities.

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

Ginsberg Center Community Engagement Grants are offered in partnership with the Vice Provost for Global Engagement and Interdisciplinary Academic Affairs, the Office of Research, and Poverty Solutions to support the community-engaged work of tenure and tenure track, research, and clinical faculty on the Ann Arbor Campus. The Ginsberg Center expects to award up to $150,000 this year through these Community Engagement Grants.

We will review applications on a rolling basis up until March 1st. We will contact applicants within one month of receiving the application.
