Campus Dialogue Grants: Realizing Higher Education’s Greater Purposes

BTtoP seeks to support inclusive and focused conversations through campus dialogue grants, with the hope that these dialogues will seed a change in the narrative around higher education from one that views a college education primarily as a pathway to a better job to one that views higher education as a pathway to a better life. 

Campus dialogue grants of up to $5,000 for a single institution or up to $15,000 for consortia (institutional matching required for both) will provide support for one-year projects (for calendar year 2017–2018) based around thematically integrated gatherings or dialogues involving a core group of diverse campus constituents.

Successful proposals should demonstrate how these dialogues will, through the lens of each institution’s unique campus culture and the issues affecting the campus community, facilitate the greater purposes of higher education: learning and discovery, well-being, civic engagement, and preparation for living meaningfully in the world.

Deadline for proposal submission: Friday, December 9, 2016.
