Subgrant Proposal Guidelines

The Service-Learning program at Wayne State College announces the availability of funding through subgrants to support the integration of Service-Learning in courses or as part of campus organizational activities. Service-Learning subgrants are usually capped at $500. However, awards are negotiable depending on the “community needs” expressed in the grant proposal.

The Service-Learning funds are made available through institutional support at WSC. Monies may be used for mileage, guest speakers, supplies, recognitions etc. Please note there are restrictions for state funds. For additional information, please call Lisa Nelson, WSC Service-Learning Director, at 402-375-7182.

WSC’s Service-Learning Faculty Advisory Committee reviews all subgrant proposals and makes recommendations for funding. Grantees will need to provide a project summary with evaluation components, faculty, community partner and student surveys, student reflections, general activity log (time/effort report), and demographic information (tracking tool) upon completion of the project/event.

Proposals should be sent to Service-Learning at WSC, Attention: Lisa Nelson, via campus mail (CH #238) or to linelso1@wsc.edu.

Proposals may be submitted at any time. The review process takes approximately one to two weeks. The number of subgrants awarded is determined by funding availability and early submissions are strongly encouraged.
