ACPA Foundation Grants Program
Call for Proposals
Annual Deadline: July 1, 2017
The ACPA Foundation is the fundraising organization for ACPA–College Student Educators International. The Foundation seeks philanthropic support for ACPA initiatives involving research and scholarship, professional development, and leadership programs for student affairs professionals in higher education.
Each year, the Foundation awards $10,000 in response to research proposals that enhance the student affairs profession and disseminate knowledge about college students.
Funding eligibility is limited to ACPA members who are conducting research that is consistent with the purposes and interests of ACPA: to enhance the student affairs profession and disseminate knowledge about college students.
The Foundation encourages applicants who are more established scholars to co-author projects with junior scholars and practitioners as a way to support their professional development and scholarly growth.
At each annual convention, the ACPA Foundation provides the previous year’s grant recipients the opportunity to present their research in a Foundation-sponsored program slot. Grant recipients may choose to submit proposals to the annual convention’s peer review process or to participate in the Foundation’s Research Grant Symposium. Recipients will be contacted in the fall following the conclusion of their grant year to determine their interest in this session.
The annually-awarded research grants usually range from $1,000 to $2,500 for one-year projects. Multi-year grants can be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Research grants may be used to fund such items as graduate student support, travel for data collection, transcription services, software for data analysis, supplies, postage, and printing. The Foundation does not provide funding for travel to conferences to present/disseminate research findings. The Foundation reserves the right to award less than the requested amount, based on availability of funds.
