Funding Available for Fall 2008: Course Based Philanthropy Curriculum Option

We are now requesting proposals from faculty teaching an undergraduate or graduate course in Fall 2008 who are interested in integrating a philanthropy component into the subject-matter of their course.   Students in the course will have $3,333 to invest in not-for-profit organizations.  The intention of the initiative is to help students to better understand community needs and experience “giving for others.”  Faculty are expected to integrate this philanthropy component into the existing curriculum of their course. With the guidance of the faculty member, students research local community organizations, evaluate applications from organizations, discuss how the fund may be put to the most effective use by non-profit organizations to address the community need, and select organization(s) to award grant(s).

Timeline and Deadlines

We will be funding one course in Fall 2008. Proposals for the Fall 2008 semester are due by May 16th.  Applicants will be notified of our selection by June 2nd. 

To apply to the program, please complete and submit the form below via email or fax to Gina Lopez, Administrative Manager, Center for Urban Research and Learning at glopez@luc.edu or 312-915-7770 (fax).
