Growth Agenda for Wisconsin
The University of Wisconsin System seeks proposals for projects that advance one or more of the three Strategic Goals of the Growth Agenda and model Inclusive Excellence. Funding will be used to support two broad categories of initiatives: Institutional Change Grants [ICG] and Conference and Professional Development Grants [CPDG].
A total of $1 million will be available for the 2013-2014 academic year. While the majority of the funding will be provided to the ICG program, the final distribution of the funding between ICG and CPDG will be determined based on the strength of the proposals.
It is anticipated that the funding level for projects in the ICG category will be significant and the associated strategies and actions will be innovative, result in substantive programmatic and/or institution-wide change (single or multiple institutions), and have the potential for broad impact and systemic transformation. Proposals requesting funding for the implementation of new projects, as well as those that seek support for significant enhancements to existing initiatives, will be considered.
It is anticipated that funding for proposals within the CPDG category will be aligned with costs needed to support a national, regional, state-wide meeting or conference that will focus on topics that are aligned with the Growth Agenda for Wisconsin and of critical importance to UW institutions. Proposals may cover a one-time only or recurring conference or professional development offering.
NOTE: This program is closed and NOT soliciting applications. Applicants may contact Denise Ehlen (firstname.lastname@example.org, x5212) to be added to our Request Log to receive the new Request for Proposals [RFP] if/when it is released. Applicants should not develop an application based on the RFP posted on this page—it is provided for informational/historical purposes only.
The above deadline is FIRM and applies to both categories of proposals and single or multi-institutional proposals. All UW System institutions are eligible to apply and up to two proposals per institution will be accepted.
UW-Whitewater has selected two institutional proposal topics/themes for submission to the Growth Agenda for Wisconsin Grant Program. Please contact Denise Ehlen (email@example.com) if you are interested in serving on a proposal development team. Unsolicited proposals will NOT be selected.
Collaborative proposals between or among University of Wisconsin institutions will NOT count towards the two proposal limit under the Institutional Change category. There is no limit on proposals in the Conference and Professional Development Grant category.
Each proposal must be signed off by the Provost and the Grants Officer. ORSP will coordinate internal review / certification and communicate approval to the sponsor.
