Service Learning Mini-Grants

The primary aim of the mini-grant program is to promote the development of service learning scholarship -- both teaching and research -- at MSU Denver. 

Faculty may apply for funding to cover the expenses ($500 max) associated with the following:

  • The service learning projects they have chosen to incorporate into their courses.
  • The presentation of their service learning scholarship at a conference or their attendance at a conference with a service learning focus.

Fall mini grants will be reviewed beginning September 2019.  Mini-Grant Applications for Spring will be reviewed beginning February 2020.
