Service Learning Faculty Fellows and Mini-Grants

Deadline: Open throughout the year (SL Fellows are eligible to apply for mini-grants)

Service-Learning:  At Texas State University, we use Bringle and Hatcher’s[1] definition of academic service-learning (SL), which is defined as:

“A course-based, credit bearing educational experience that allows students to (a) participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and (b) reflect on the service activity in such a way as to gain further understanding of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of personal values and civic responsibility.”

The Offices of Service-Learning Excellence (formerly known as the Service-Learning Initiative) wants to recognize faculty that are incorporating service-learning in their courses and/or research as Service-Learning Fellows. 

SL Fellows Eligibility:  Faculty/Instructors at all career tracks (full- or part-time) or academic rank (per-course lecturer to tenure-track faculty) from all disciplines and professional schools at Texas State University are eligible to apply.

Mini-Grant Eligibility:  SL Fellow

Mini-grants are intended to directly support activities related to developing, implementing, or expanding academic service-learning opportunities for Texas State students and faculty.  Funding may be requested to support SL research or class activities.  Mini-grants are limited to $350 per faculty member for resources.  Limited teaching assistance is available.
