Conducting scholarship that is mutually beneficial for the university scholar and for the community is a topic of great interest to members of the Engaged Scholarship Consortium (ESC). The ESC Scholarship Committee has been charged with the role of helping to facilitate this outcome for higher education faculty. In response to this need, a small grants program has been developed.

Faculty at ESC Member Institutions may apply for up to $5,000 to fund a one-year project.

Applications due: May 7, 2021
