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 http://www.morgridge.wisc.edu/faculty/matchingfunds.html. Funding is available until September 1, 2014.
