Kellogg Award nominations

Applications are currently being ­accepted for the 2016 Outreach Scholarship-W.K. Kellogg Foundation Engagement Award. Sponsored by the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities and the Engaged Scholarship Consortium, with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the award program seeks to identify colleges and universities that have redesigned their learning, discovery and engagement functions to become even more involved with their communities.

A committee administered by the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach will recommend one applicant to be UGA’s nominee for the Southern region.

To apply, send an electronic, 500-word abstract to Paul J. Brooks, associate vice president, by Jan. 15 that summarizes the outreach and engagement partnership; the issue and its significance for the relationship between the university and community, including the reciprocity of the relationship; the partnership’s impact on the community partner(s), and on the university partners; the lessons learned and the best practices from the partnership; and future plans for the partnership.

The applicant selected to be the UGA’s nominee will be asked to complete the full nomination packet by early March to meet APLU’s early April entry deadline. Submit all nominations and questions to Brooks at 706-542-6167 or by Jan. 29.
