UC Berkeley has launched the 2015-16 cycle of Chancellor’s Community Partnership Grants, offering up to $260,000 to innovative campus-Berkeley community partnerships for projects beginning in the summer or early fall of 2015.
The Fund supports projects in arts and culture, community safety, economic development, environmental stewardship and education. Since its establishment in 2006, in partial settlement of a lawsuit by the City of Berkeley, the fund has awarded nearly $2 million to more than 120 neighborhood-improvement and community-service programs, including many park projects.
Pre-applications are due Dec. 8. About 20-25 of these applicants will be asked to submit detailed proposals, due Mar. 2. Awards will be announced in May, with funds available in last summer or fall, 2015. A “mixer” with opportunities to learn more about the grants and meet potential UC partners is set for 4-6 PM Wed., Oct. 22, at the Berkeley Skydeck, 2150 Shattuck Ave., penthouse level.
Information including forms and guidelines is here or at 510/643-5299 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
