The work of service-learning has been around since the 1960s, and the literature on the implementation of it, primarily in the higher education context, has developed over the last two decades. Collectively, the research to date indicates that service-learning is becoming more frequently implemented across educational contexts to help students find their place in the world, where they have power and agency, and where they can make a change. The Handbook examines how community-engagement is carried out in various educational contexts in the 21st Century. The handbook highlights a variety of community-engagement projects carried out across various educational contexts, including the PK-12 and higher education contexts, the traditional and online classrooms, and in volunteer organizations. This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global. Deadline to submit is March 15, 2015.
This two-year leadership development program focuses on building a group of senior level Public Health Nurse Leaders who have the capacity to lead individuals, organizations and communities to build partnerships around a Culture of Health. When PHNLs have the leadership skills to develop and implement community based strategies to improve the health of the population, build partnerships with key stakeholders in organizations and communities, and influence organizational, state and federal policy, they become effective change makers for building a Culture of Health in their communities and across America. This solicitation will fund the senior leadership development of up to 24 PHNLs for two years, including travel to program meetings, a value of over $40,000 each. Applications due April 17, 2015.
The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for language documentation and revitalization, and linguistic fieldwork. Funded work should serve both the native community and the field of linguistics, although projects which have immediate applicability to one group and more distant application to the other will also be considered. Proposals can originate in any country. The language involved must be in danger of disappearing within on to two generations. Endangerment is a continuum, and the location on the continuum is one factor in funding decisions. Grant awards range from $2,000-$4,o00. Note that many languages in the Northwestern U.S. are NOT eligible for the Language Legacies grant. Proposals due by April 20, 2015.
The National Environmental Education Foundation is providing capacity building grants to land service projects for Friend Groups. The foundation will support organizations that work with land managers at the federal, state or local level that focus on serving a public land area. Help to maintain public land sites often comes from nonprofit organizations whose missions are focused on the improvement and responsible use of those sites. Sometimes these organizations are called Friends Groups, sometimes Cooperating Associations, sometimes, simply a partner. They are invaluable in supporting, promoting and helping maintain public lands. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded. Proposals for summer cycle due by April 30, 2015.
The 2015 Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty emphasizes community-engaged scholarly work across faculty roles. The scholarship of engagement (also known as outreach scholarship, public scholarship, scholarship for the common good, community-based scholarship, and community-engaged scholarship) represents an integrated view of faculty roles in which teaching, research/creative activity, and service overlap and are mutually reinforcing. It is characterized by scholarly work tied to a faculty member’s expertise and is of benefit to the external community. The New England Resource Center for Higher Educations (NERCHE) will be accepting nominations for the award, which will be presented at the 21st Annual Conference of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities, “A Love of Place: The Metropolitan Advantage,” which will be held October 11-13, 2015, in Omaha, Nebraska. Nominations are due by May 15, 2015.
