Service Learning to Offer New Student Travel Grants; Due March 15

Since fall 2015, over 6,500 students have participated in designated service-learning courses, here and abroad, generating over 273,000 service hours to the communities in which they have served. The Service Learning Initiative would like to make it easier for students to travel to promote their service learning course experience or to conduct service learning based research. 

Service Learning Student Travel Grants are presented to support travel for a domestic academic conference presentation related to a service-learning course or research. The funds can also be used to support data collection domestically for service learning based research. The Service Learning Initiative will consider proposals for up to $1,000. Funds must be used by June 30. 

The deadline for the grants proposals is March15. Students must have support from their service-learning instructor or service-learning research mentor to submit an application. Guidelines, and the link for applying can be found here.

One final call for proposals will be offered in May for summer and early fall travel.  

Visit the Service Learning website for more information on this grant, grants for faculty and the designation process for service learning courses and research.  

For questions regarding the student travel grant process, please contact Rachel Backes at or Jennie Popp at or (479) 575-7381.
