College Outreach Support
Internal Outreach Grants
The College of Design provides internal opportunities for faculty and staff to apply for funding to assist in delivery of outreach projects which involve community engagement.

Application Deadline: November 1 for the following calendar year.
The Curriculum-based Design Outreach Fund supports the CoD’s curriculum-based design outreach efforts. This includes incentivizing teams of faculty to initiate studio courses which promote faculty and student interaction with potential communities to identify curriculum-based outreach activities. The funding for this program will have a duration of one semester with a maximum funding level of $1,500. This funding is not limited to a geographic area. Application Deadline: November 1 for one semester during the following calendar year.
