CEAL Course Development Grants
CEAL's Community-Based Learning (CBL) Course Development Grants are open to all tenured and tenure-track faculty; clinical instructional faculty; and lecturers who have continuing appointments and course development responsibilities. This grant is for faculty who teach on the Ann Arbor campus.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and between 5-10 grants are awarded each year, depending on amounts requested. Award notifications are typically received within two weeks of application submission.
Expenses that can be covered by these grants may include, but are not limited to: honoraria for community speakers, summer projects aimed at developing or enhancing community partnerships, and Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program Training Institute tuition.
Faculty awarded a CEAL CBL Course Development Grant should confer with CEAL staff about their project proposal and must (1) use the funds as originally proposed, (2) complete a post-award questionnaire (3) attend at least one CEAL CBL Communities of Practice Session in the term following the award, and (4) participate in an interview about their project, to be posted on the CEAL site.
