The Kaplan Family Distinguished Faculty Fellowship in Service-Learning recognizes the importance of the national movement in higher education for greater involvement in civic engagement.

Two faculty members, who are having a significant impact on undergraduate, professional, or graduate education at Cornell by involving their students in challenging service-learning programs, will be given a $5,000 award to enable them to further develop an ongoing community-based learning/research project, to initiate a new effort, or to seek institutionalization of a service-learning course.

Nominees/applicants must be full-time Cornell faculty members and be able to demonstrate involvement in public scholarship in their nomination/application. Faculty members may apply on their own or be nominated.

Nomination and application information will be posted soon.
