Community-University Partnerships & Service Learning
Financial Support from the CUPS OfficeThe Office of Community-University Partnerships and Service-Learning tries, in many ways, to share our budget directly with those who are actively implementing service-learning. Read on to find out how we might support you and your programs:
Service-Learning Implementation Grants: offers funding for the project implementation phases of service-learning courses. Implementation grants are awarded on a rolling, first-come-first-served basis each year to support expenses associated with carrying out a service-learning course or community-based participatory research project. Faculty members or students (with a letter of faculty support) may apply for funding of up to $300.
Undergraduate student researchers are encouraged to seek support though UVM's Undergraduate Research OfficeThe Service-Learning Teaching Assistant Program: trains students in service-learning pedagogy and places them as teaching assistants in service-learning courses at no cost to the faculty or department. Teaching assistants are compensated for their work in a variety of ways. This program can be especially useful for students supporting international service-learning courses, as it can help to offset their fees. Visit our program page for more information.
