Enrichment grants are available through funding established as a part of the U.S. Department of Education Title III grant, Pathways to Students’ Success: Integrating Academic Support Services for Maximum Student Benefit. The Pathways Enrichment Grant Program for faculty will fund initiatives to develop new enrichment activities for CUS students (research opportunities, internships, externships, service learning, and honors programming, etc.). In addition students participating in activities may request support to present projects at regional and national conferences. Pathways enrichment grants also aim to help students explore possible careers and relate them to their academic experience. A total of $18,000 is available for the period from October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013.
The Pathways to Success (P2S) Enrichment Grant funds are available for projects which support enrichment experiences for CUS students and which directly impact retention through greater engagement of students with the educational experience at IU . Any full-time faculty member may apply.
