Rutgers-Newark Community-Based Learning Grant Program

The Community-Based Learning Grant Program is supported by the Office of Community-Based Learning, based in the Office of the Assistant Chancellor and Library Director, John Cotton Dana Library. The grant program provides funding to support initiatives to integrate, or further integrate, community-based learning components in undergraduate courses.

The grants are intended to assist faculty in the development of new courses or the revision of pre-existing courses that permit them to incorporate aspects of community-based learning in curricular content.

The grants are intended to facilitate student projects in community agencies in Newark, in non-profit organizations, or in offices of New Jersey (or city or county) government, for example.
