CSL Awards — Call for Submissions!

The Foundation is now accepting submissions for the newly launched Community Service-Learning (CSL) Awards competition. CSL is a model of experiential learning that combines classroom learning with volunteer work designed to achieve community goals and to instill in students a sense of civic engagement. Between 2004 and 2012, the Foundation will have granted $9.4 million to support the introduction and growth of community service-learning programs through its CSL initiative.
The CSL Awards will recognize successful community initiatives supported by robust community service-learning programs. They will highlight innovative approaches that have — and will continue to — transform relationships, structures, policies, and/or mainstream practices. The Foundation hopes that such recognition will encourage similar initiatives in communities across the country. A total of $30,000 is available for up to four awards of $7,500 each.
Community organizations and post-secondary institutions are invited to jointly submit an application by December 1, 2011. Award winners will be announced in the spring of 2012 at a public event and several outstanding initiatives will be profiled in the media.
