Call for Proposals for William P. Dean Mini-Grants
The Collaborative for Community Engagement (CCE) is pleased to announce a call for proposals for this year’s William P. Dean Memorial Fund Community Engagement Mini-Grants.
The William P. Dean Memorial Fund supports undergraduate initiatives and projects that collaborate with a community nonprofit to address the needs of marginalized populations. The maximum award will be $750, and a maximum of two awards will be given this year.
Any student-initiated project that works with a community nonprofit partner to address a social need will be eligible. Applicants should be actively engaged in community-based work in the local Colorado Springs community or in the student’s home community.
The Soup Project
The Soup Project is a truly innovative project to re-envision Colorado College’s role in addressing hunger, poverty, and homelessness in Colorado Springs. For over 23 years, the Community Kitchen at Colorado College served a meal to hungry Colorado Springs residents each Sunday. The Soup Project is the next step in meeting these pressing community needs by creating and supporting four student-led projects (developed through the Soup Project Challenge) that utilize the unique talents of the Colorado College community to address issues of hunger, poverty, and homelessness in creative, innovative ways. These programs each have at least one strong partnership in the local community, and are supported by the Collaborative for Community Engagement and the Innovation Institute of Colorado College.
