The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning

Funding for Collective Impact

The Edward Ginsberg Center is delighted to share two new 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, research, and other educational proposals focused on advancing equity and decreasing economic and racial disparities 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 these opportunities with interested colleagues!

Ginsberg Center Community Engagement Grants for Interprofessional Education are offered in partnership with the Center for Interprofessional Education (IPE) to support interprofessional, community-engaged initiatives. Grants up to $5,000 will be awarded to support interprofessional teams, representing at least two different schools, that include at least one past or current IPE Fellow.
