Morgridge Grants support efforts to put civic engagement in curricula

Thanks to the generosity of John and Tashia Morgridge, the Morgridge Center for Public Service has established the Morgridge Match Challenge Grant Program to further advance curricular and co-curricular civic engagement at UW-Madison. This program is designed to: 1) encourage and support community-campus partnerships, 2) enhance learning and leadership experiences for students, and 3) provide professional development opportunities for faculty and staff.

The program will match up to 50% of new gifts and grants awarded to a UW-Madison entity as well community-UW-Madison partnership initiatives, based on the portion of the grant/gift specifically related to the mission and goals of the Morgridge Center. *This includes money for MIU projects and other 101-funded projects that meet the guidelines.*

For eligibility guidelines, program details, how to apply and contact information go to Funding is available until September 1, 2014.
