Community Engaged Pedagogy Fund
Brandeis faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars in any discipline who center community engaged pedagogies in their undergraduate or graduate courses at Brandeis are invited to apply to the COMPACT Community Engaged Pedagogy Fund. The two grants available through this fund support recipients in bringing ethical, reciprocal and sustainable community engagement into Brandeis classrooms.
COMPACT Pedagogy Project Grant
This grant offers up to $2,500 in funds for community engaged research or creative projects that will be conducted in a Brandeis course. Applications for Fall 2023 classes are due Aug. 1, 2023, and applications for Spring 2024 classes are due Dec. 1, 2023.
Community Engaged Pedagogy Mini-Grants
This program offers up to $500 in funding to bring community partners to campus as guest speakers in a class (e.g., honoraria), to bring students off campus for a specific community engaged project or event or to conduct small-scale community engaged research or creative projects in a Brandeis course. Grant applications for AY23-24 are being accepted on a rolling basis, for as long as funds remain available.
