Project Pericles Fund

Connecting Campus, Curriculum & Communities

Based upon our renewed commitment to engaged scholarship and ethical intelligence, students who are interested in applying for a grant from the Project Pericles Fund must first enroll in a course together that is directly relevant to understanding the issue area, unpacking the social problem, and/or designing project elements (if they have not already done so). In some cases, the project could be developed in the context of the class. Alternately, the faculty member instructing the course could serve as an advisor to the students as the project proposal emerges and comes to fruition. After that first semester in a course together, then members of the group (assuming they have been named “Periclean Scholars” and begin to receive grant funding) would need to commit to taking courses throughout the lifetime of the grant.
