Applications for Curricular/Co-Curricular Grants will be accepted until funding is exhausted and no later May 15, 2014. All events must occur by June 1, 2014.  Any Purchase Requisitions for approved grant purchases must be made and submitted for payment to the UW-S Business Office to comply with fiscal year end purchasing deadlines.  All other purchases must be made and submitted for CETL payment approval by June 1, 2013, to ensure inclusion in year end fiscal expenses.

GRANT REQUIREMENTS:

The criteria for the grant application include:

  • A clear understanding of how the proposed event is linked to curricular and co-curricular learning (e.g. a partnership between an instructor and a student organization to host an on campus learning event;a partnership between in classroom and out-of-classroom learning between applicant teams);
  • Each grant will involve a collaborative team of curricular/co-curricular partners:meaning more than one person involved in the grant design;we will specifically look for curricular and co-curricular partnerships;
  • Each grant should provide a specific learning opportunity or activity for students, with objectives and outcomes specified and the assessment process being used to determine if outcomes were met;
  • Each grant team will be expected to write a short three paragraph summary of event, objectives, attendance, outcomes attained via assessment and next planned event (if exists);
  • The limit is $500 (total sum) during the academic year to any single "application team" (meaning a member of curricular community and a member of the co-curricular community) on campus. We anticipate that there will be situations where the same person forms different collaborative teams with different people so the key unit is the "application team" not repeating;
  • The grant application should specify the classroom and out-of-classroom link in the education experience (e.g. what course or curriculum is the event tied to and how? how will the co-curricular event be linked to specific in-classroom experiences);
  • There will be an ongoing grant application process until May 15, 2014, or funding is exhausted up to $2500 total (that could be five projects if funded at the maximum of $500 per application);
  • All events must occur prior to June 1, 2014, so that funding is within this fiscal year.  Any Purchase Requisitions for approved grant purchases must be made and submitted for payment to the UW-S Business Office to comply with fiscal year end purchasing deadlines.  All other purchases must be made and submitted for CETL payment approval by June 1, 2014, to ensure inclusion in year end fiscal expenses.

In exchange for this grant support, educators are expected to:

  • Provide documentation via poster or other documentation of event occurring;
  • Provide photos for use within CETL for publicity, webpage documentation or other public information purposes;
