Funding Opportunity: Bringing theory to practice grants announced

New Funding Available from Bringing Theory to Practice

Founded in 2003, Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP) encourages and supports colleges and universities in developing sustainable campus cultures that reaffirm higher education’s core purposes:

  • Advancing higher learning and discovery
  • Fostering the well-being of the whole student
  • Serving as a public good to deepen and sustain a civic society

To date, more than 480 grants at varying levels of support have been awarded to diverse colleges and universities. For the 2015-2017 funding cycle, proposals are invited in the following categories:

Category I: Well-Being Seminar Grants

Seminar Grants (up to $1,000) provide support for campus-wide planning discussions (seminars) that give focused attention to a particular dimension of the well-being of those involved (students, faculty, or other leaders) in creating and maintaining an engaged culture for learning. Seminars should deepen participants’ understanding of the institution’s commitment to whole-person development and the learning-related policies and practices, both inside and outside the curriculum, that support such endeavors.

First deadline for Category I grant proposals: September 15, 2015.

Category II: Well-Being Research Project Grants

Research Project Grants (up to $10,000, plus institutional matching) should implement and assess a campus-based, two-year research project that focuses on the well-being of students, particularly those traditionally underserved by higher education. Projects should, through the gathering of evidence, provide justification for best practices that deepen and sustain the institution’s commitment to whole-person development.

The ONLY deadline for Category II grant proposals: August 1, 2015.

BTtoP’s full 2015-2017 RFP and supporting materials are available here.
