The UW-Madison Office of the Provost invites proposals from faculty, staff, and students for the 2020 Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment grant competition. The endowment helps foster the Wisconsin Idea, a tradition evolving from the words of University of Wisconsin President Charles Van Hise in 1904, who declared that he would “never be content until the beneficent influence of the university reaches every family in the state.”
Proposals are encouraged for new outreach and public engagement activities that partner with community and off-campus organizations to extend and apply our research, education, and practice-based knowledge to help solve problems and foster learning.
The endowment supports Seed Project grants of $4,000 or less, and larger Project Grants up to $120,000. Please review the detailed application guidance documents on the Baldwin website.
The proposal deadline is November 11, 2019.
Several Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment information sessions have been scheduled for late September and early October. Please see the Baldwin website for details. The website also provides summaries of previously awarded projects.
