On behalf of the Center for Community-Based Partnerships, I am pleased
to announce our sixth call for Seed Fund projects.
This program has been an outstanding success, returning to the campus
more than $12 for each $1 awarded, or more than $2.5 million since 2006.
Congratulations to all of you previous winners.
And I also want to congratulate the Proposal Support Committee who make
the funding recommendations to me. Led by Annette Watters, this committee
has recognized the potential in work that has now been published in the
nation's finest engaged scholarship journals, including our own JCES, and
been featured at the leading engaged-scholarship conferences nationally and
With this letter is a one-sheet, back and front, application form with
instructions. We have tried to keep the requirements simple and hope that
many of you will submit your proposals right away. The deadline to get your
no-more-than-six-page application to my office is Wednesday, September 21.
Next spring we will have an online form and a deadline that will allow us to
recognize the winners at our annual Awards Luncheon and you to get your
project going before fall semester begins.
Best of luck in 2011"“2012.
