CCMA Student Group Mini-Grant
The student group mini-grant is for student groups desiring to strengthen their service-learning and community engagement efforts. Individual grant amounts of $250 are typically available for up to eight college and university student groups to assist with community events, volunteer recruitment, student engagement, student conferences, or any other activity promoting student engagement within the community. Projects and activities engaging with K12 schools, equity issues, and food security are particularly encouraged.
CCMA Faculty Workshop Mini-Grant
The faculty workshop mini-grant is for member institutions desiring to strengthen their service-learning and community engagement efforts. Four matching grants of up to $1000 are typically available for member colleges and universities to use to organize faculty development workshops on their campus. Topics that CCMA is particularly interested in funding are: faculty development and training; evaluation and assessment; reflection; community partnerships; promoting diversity and equity; civic responsibility and engagement; and institutionalization. Workshops engaging with topics of K12 schools, equity issues, and food security are particularly encouraged. Each institution must be committed to matching the grant money given by CCMA.
