Program Innovation Mini-Grants

The purpose of the Campus Compact for Wisconsin (CCWI) Program Innovation Mini-Grant Program is to foster and support innovative programs associated with CCWI member institutions, specifically those programs that focus on community-based learning, co-curricular civic engagement, and/or community-based research. We intend for funded programs to yield innovative ideas, insights, principles, and practices that may be useful to our broader network of colleges and universities.

Please apply using the Program Innovation Mini-Grants Program application (updated 12/05/18). The Application is Closed for the 2019-20 Year.
