Mini-Grant and Fellowship Funding Opportunities

January 4th, 2019 by


UCEA is proud to announce two funding opportunities. Application materials for both funding opportunities are due on March 1, 2019.


UCEA Program Center Mini-Grants

UCEA will be able to grant up to 2 mini-grants to UCEA Program Centers. The grants are intended to support the work of the Center by broadening its impact on the greater UCEA community. The maximum amount is $5,000. The funding will be available beginning July 1, 2019.

The UCEA Program Center Advisory Board will evaluate the grant proposals and make funding recommendations to the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee will make mini-grant award decisions at its summer meeting and funds will be available beginning July 1, 2018.


UCEA Graduate Student Fellowship

The UCEA Graduate Student Fellowship aims to provide research, mentoring, and career development opportunities for an outstanding graduate student who is enrolled in a UCEA member educational leadership program (see here for a list of universities) and intend to enter the professoriate. The UCEA Graduate Student Fellow will receive a stipend of $5,000. The fellows will be in residence for typically six to eight weeks during the summer at one of the UCEA programs centers (contingent upon acceptance from individual centers ability to host a student).
