Mini Grant Program

The Office of Community Engagement Gheens Foundation Mini Grant Program 

SLIDESHOW: Oct. 14 Awards Ceremony at the 2022 Community Engagement Luncheon

2022 UofL Office of Community Engagement INVEST 3 Engaged Learning Mini Grants Luncheon

In fall 2022 The Office of Community Engagement invited proposals from faculty, staff, and students to apply for mini grants that will directly impact the community. The awarded projects will directly benefit the community through direct service, research, or outreach in collaboration with community partners. Priority was given to projects in collaboration with underrepresented communities such as west and south Louisville, the immigrant and refugee community, rural communities, or the international community. These Mini Grants were made possible through the generous support of the Gheens Foundation. 

Congratulations to the 2022 Awardees and their collaborators.
