DescriptionThe Foundation’s charge is “to support and strengthen liberal arts education, which we see as the fundamental to meaningful work, effective citizenship, and a fulfilling life.” The Foundation’s Education in American Civic Life Initiative supports faculty-led efforts to prepare graduates to become informed and engaged participants in the civic life of their local, national, and global communities. Through the Initiative, the Foundation seeks ambitious projects that address gaps in the civic knowledge of undergraduates and prepares them for the intellectual demands of democratic participation. Successful proposals will seek to promote learning about the formation of the American republic, the crafting of its Constitution, the history of contention over the meanings of the Constitution, the development of representative political structures, and the principles of democracy. Grants of up to $400,000 over three years will be awarded to projects participating in the Initiative with the size of the grant determined by the number of institutions involved and the scope of the project. Planning grants in the range of $25,000 over six to 12 months will be considered, especially for projects that involve multiple campus partners. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
