Apply

This initiative awards grants to UMBC faculty, staff, and students to implement educational and community-building courses and programs that foster civic agency: the capacity to initiate and make meaningful contributions to social change.

CRITERIA

This application must be connected to a UMBC office, department or recognized student organization. Funds are awarded by the BreakingGround Course or Program Grant Committees. We seek proposals that reflect BreakingGround values and help to position participants make meaningful contributions to the campus and/or surrounding community.

IF YOUR PROPOSAL IS ACCEPTED YOU MUST AGREE TO:

  1. Cooperate with the BreakingGround Course or Program Grant Committee to create assessments and photographic and/or video records of your project, as well as written reflections/blog posts.
  2. Manage funds strategically and appropriately to support the work you propose, completing all expenditures before funds expire.
  3. Complete a BreakingGround Grant evaluation report.

PROPOSAL DEADLINES

Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis. Proposals submitted earlier in the 2016-2017 academic year are likely to receive the most favorable consideration.

HELP WITH DEVELOPING YOUR PROPOSAL

The BreakingGround Course Committee and Project Grant Committee are available to help applicants at all stages of their proposal writing process. The committees can help applicants with brainstorming (for those who are early in their planning process) and refining proposal drafts. If you are interested in getting further support, please email Eloise Grose .

A member of the review committees will contact you to discuss your status and the next steps in the grant selection process.
