The CCE can provide support for community-engaged projects and initiatives that align with our mission and strategic priorities. We offer two competitive grants for students, and encourage you to check them out and apply if your interests align.
Community Engagement Mini-Grants
Supported bythe William P. Dean Memorial Fund
The William P. Dean Memorial Fund supports undergraduate initiatives and projects that collaborate with a community nonprofit to address the needs of marginalized populations.Any student-initiated project that works with a community nonprofit partner to address a social need will be eligible. Applicants should be actively engaged in community-based work in the local Colorado Springs community or in the student’s home community.
The Davis Projects for Peace is an initiative for all students at the Davis United World College Scholars Program partner schools (including CC) to design grassroots summer projects - anywhere in the world - which promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties. Through a competition on over 90 campuses, projects will be selected for funding at $10,000 each. We encourage applicants to use their creativity to design projects and employ innovative techniques for engaging project participants in ways that focus on conflict resolution, reconciliation, building understanding and breaking down barriers which cause conflict, and finding solutions for resolving conflict and maintaining peace. Domestic and international projects are considered.
