Are you planning or involved in a creativity-focused activity that engages the UF campus and larger community? Or are you interested in sustainable agriculture and interested in incorporating experiential learning with Field and Fork staff into your courses? If either sounds like you, be sure to check out the opportunities below.
UF Creative Campus grants
The UF Creative Campus Initiative seeks to establish educational settings that foster creativity in all disciplines, promote new interdisciplinary interactions and encourage new ways of solving problems and formulating ideas. These, in turn, support the larger UF goal of fostering an educational institution in which creativity, innovation, collaboration and empathy permeate academic life and impact education.
Faculty whose research or teaching utilizes innovative approaches to solving problems, providing novel insights or introducing fresh perspectives are encouraged to apply for a Creative Campus grant as an opportunity to engage campus, inform undergraduate education or impact the community.
The UF Creative Campus Committee administers an annual funding process for project proposals. The two categories are Catalyst Grants and Creative Scholars-in-Residence, and the total amount of funding annually for this program is $50,000.
Applications are due Feb. 24. Learn more, including how to apply, at creativecampus.ufl.edu.
