Boulder campus faculty are invited to submit proposals for 2014-2015 outreach funds to be awarded by the CU-Boulder Outreach Committee in June 2014. Proposed outreach projects should extend faculty members’ research, teaching, and creative work.
Individual faculty applicants may request up to $8,000 for each outreach project; interdisciplinary or interdepartmental faculty groups may request from $8,000- $24,000 for a collaborative outreach project.
The 2014-2015 proposal guidelines and the online submission form can be found at outreachawards.colorado.edu. Proposals must be submitted by Monday, April 14. Please review the guidelines in advance of your submission and send any questions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CU-Boulder Outreach Committee, comprised of faculty and community members from many disciplines, oversees the award process. Last year, the committee awarded funds to 42 individual and interdisciplinary outreach and engagement projects that served communities, K-12 constituents, and citizens with limited access to university programs.
Since 1999, the committee has supported more than 500 faculty projects. These awards are made possible through contributions made by the Offices of the Chancellor and Provost and the Division of Continuing Education.
Outreach and engagement is defined as the way faculty, staff, and students collaborate with external groups in mutually beneficial partnerships that are grounded in scholarship and consistent with our role and mission as a comprehensive, public research university. Applicants are encouraged to review the campus definition of outreach and engagement before applying.
