The Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation recognizes the best community service work of university/college students, faculty and staff as they partner with community groups. The programs of the Foundation recognize and provide financial support to outstanding examples of campus-community collaboration and innovative ideas to serve the community. The competitive grants are awarded to the student proposals which are judged most viable and creative in their approach to establishing or significantly furthering a partnership between the community and the student's school.
The New York Campus Compact is providing to students at member campuses access to six Carter Academic Service Entrepreneur (CASE) Grant awards of $1,000 to support a campus/community project. Supported by the Kellogg Foundation, the CASE Grants encourage students to collaborate with a community organization, work with a faculty member, and develop an effective response to a pressing community need. All applications are made on ServiceBook , and are evaluated by a panel of NYCC reviewers. Awards made this spring may be applied to projects in the spring, summer or fall. All funds will be awarded before August 2008, although project activities and expenditures may continue into the fall.
