Morgridge Fellows Program seeks applicants for community-engaged teaching and research opportunity

The Morgridge Center for Public Service is piloting an academic enrichment opportunity this fall. The Morgridge Fellows Program, as it is called, has been established to further institutionalize and support community-engaged teaching and research at UW-Madison.

The Morgridge Center for Public Service will select six faculty members, instructors and staff who have a deep commitment to community-engaged teaching and research to join the inaugural cohort of the Morgridge Fellows Program.

Morgridge Fellows will:

  • Attend monthly 90-minute seminars as a cohort to discuss readings, work on creating a course or modifying an existing course to be taught using a community-based learning approach, plan community-based research projects, and/or work on other community-engaged scholarship (CES) activities.
  • Receive a stipend of $1,500 that can be used for conference attendance, resource materials, or other professional development activities that further their understanding of CES.
  • Have the opportunity to attend a CES Speaker event featuring a nationally known expert in the CES field, including a pre-lecture dinner with the speaker, exclusively for the Fellows cohort.

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply. Application information can be accessed here. The application deadline is July 13, with expected notification of Fellowship recipients by August 1.

Please contact Beth Tryon ( at the Morgridge Center with any questions about the Fellows Program.
