The Barbara and Edward Netter Center for Community Partnerships Course Development Grants: March 28
February 12, 2008, Volume 54, No. 21

The Barbara and Edward Netter Center for Community Partnerships announces course development grants to promote Academically Based Community Service (ABCS) courses that integrate research, teaching, learning and service. Over 150 courses from a wide range of disciplines and Penn schools have linked Penn undergraduate and graduate students to work in the community. The grants support University faculty to develop new courses or adapt existing courses that combine research with school and community projects (see www.upenn.edu/ccp/ for a list of ABCS courses).

Proposals should be submitted by faculty to one of the two programs listed below. The proposal format and deadline is identical for both programs (see below). A particular proposal can be submitted to only one program, but faculty maya submit more than one proposal. Information is provided below to help applicants judge which program provides the best fit for the proposed course. If you have further questions about matching your proposal to one of the programs, please contact Jason Min at minjason@gmail.com.

Grants will be for no more than $4,000 per project. These funds can be used to provide graduate and undergraduate support, course support and/or summer salary ($4,000 is inclusive of E.B. if taken as salary).
The programs are:

1.  STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Partnerships

2.  Netter Center Course Development Program

1. STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Partnerships:
The Access Science program, funded by the National Science Foundation, engages math, science and engineering undergraduate and graduate students in developing and implementing hands-on and inquiry-based math and science in West Philadelphia classrooms.
