The American Democracy Project (ADP) at the University of Central Missouri (UCM) invites interested faculty, staff and students to submit grant proposals consistent with its purpose and goals, which help to encourage, promote, and/or develop civic engagement.
There are no restrictions on the format of proposed projects. Applications supporting new activities and programs, however, will be preferred. Creativity and collaboration among faculty, staff, and students are encouraged.
The grant program is intended to create opportunities for intellectual and experiential understanding of civic engagement for students enrolled at UCM. The project focuses on the development of informed graduates who are committed to lives of engagement as citizens in our democracy.
1. To increase the number of students who understand and are committed to engaging
in meaningful civic actions.
2. To focus the attention of policy makers and opinion leaders on the civic value of the college experience.
