Engage Detroit Workshops: Request for Proposals
Submissions due: April 28th

The Engage Detroit Workshops grant program supports small groups of U-M faculty and staff members with a faculty lead in organizing a workshop, speaker series, or similar event centered on a topic relevant to Detroit communities. The Vice Provost for Engaged Learning (VPEL) will provide financial support for up to seven workshops or seminar series in the amount of up to $15,000 per awarded workshop or speaker series proposal. VPEL staff will support awarded proposers through advertising of the planned event(s) and assisting with planning of the organizational aspects of the event(s) as requested.

Proposers should secure cost-share from a University’s unit (department, school/college, center, or initiative) or external entity amounting to at least 25% of the total proposed budget.
