Carter Academic Service Entrepreneur Grant (CASE)
LSE has been selected to present a grant from the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation. The grant will be awarded to the student whose application indicates the most innovative and promising use of 1,000 to establish or significantly further a partnership between the student, the LSE and a community non-profit organisation.
Administered by the LSE Volunteer Centre, this grant seeks to foster academic-service learning at colleges and universities and is already established in 12 North-American Universities.
The London School of Economics and Political Science will premier a variation of JRCPF's CASE program designed specifically for schools with a large number of students from overseas.
In this case, the award winning student will be offered the opportunity to receive an additional grant whereby s/he can re-create the project in their home city or country with a new community partner and a second micro-grant of equal amount.
The program is limited to students currently enrolled at LSE. http://www.lse.ac.uk/collections/carterGrant/
Media – 2006
December 2006: Carter Foundation honors Doug Walton '09; helps to plant 'Seeds of Hope'http://www.jcu.edu/news/carter_grant.htm
The Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation has named (John Carroll University student) Doug Walton '09 a "Carter Academic Service Entrepreneur" for writing a $1,000 grant awarded in conjunction with College 360 (a NE Ohio initiative to increase the region's supply of college-educated workers.)
On hand last week (Dec 7) to present the Carter certificate of merit was Torie Front, Associate Director of Ohio Campus Compact, an organization of 45 Ohio colleges and universities established to support student and institutional participation in community and public service.
Walton, Erin McBride '09 and Rachel Giannell '08 have spearheaded a year-long effort to found "Seeds of Hope" as a Big Brother/Big Sister program in which 20 JCU students each will mentor a 6th, 7th or 8th grade pupil from Cleveland's Joseph Gallagher Elementary School. The children there face daunting challenges involving poverty, violence and English proficiency.
"The partnerships formed through 'Seeds of Hope' will potentially last through the child's elementary school education," said Emma Hayes, Campus Minister for Christian Life Communities and Immersion Experiences. The $1,000 grant, along with a $500 grant from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development helps bring "Seeds of Hope" closer to reality.
The JCU students derived the title from a quote by martyred Salvadorean Archbishop Oscar Romero: "We are prophets of a future not our own. We plant seeds that will one day grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise."
Center for Adult, Continuing education and Extension selected as one of the Finalists for JRCPA-India
The Center has won the Jimmy Rosalyn Carter Partnership Foundation Award, for the year 2006, a prestigious recognition, for literacy, post-literacy and follow-up program undertaken in one of the biggest slum areas in Chandigarh, situated near the University Campus. This award carried a prize of US$ 3000 and a citation.http://www.usd.edu/press/news/news.cfm?nid=905
August 29, 2006: Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation Grant Collaboration at The University of South Dakota
VERMILLION, S.D. — The University of South Dakota is proud to announce a collaboration with the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation (JRCPF) of Atlanta, Ga. The U was selected to host this award due to its leadership in service-learning through the Interdisciplinary Education & Action or “IdEA” Program and the Student Action Office, The U’s center for academic and community engagement. The U will present a $1,000 grant to a student whose application indicates the most innovative and promising way to establish or significantly further a partnership between the student, The U, and a community nonprofit organization. The grant, sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is designed to foster academic service-learning at American colleges and universities. In addition to the monetary prize, the winner’s project report will be published on the Foundation’s website, www.jrcpf.org.
“Being chosen by the JRCPF to award this grant is a great honor for The U, and hopefully it is the beginning of a long collaboration with the foundation. I am confident that USD students will propose projects that are both original and vital to the Vermillion community,” said Alex Berke, an AmeriCorps VISTA member in the Student Action Office.
Applications are due Oct. 15 by 5 p.m. to the Student Action Office, 103 Old Main. Students who have worked with a community partner in or around the Vermillion area in the past and have an idea for a service-learning project that deepens the connection between The U and community are strongly encouraged to apply. The application guidelines encourage ingenuity as the student links their academic experience with a community need. This grant will be awarded to a project that will take place in the 2007 spring semester. Applications are available in the Student Action Office on campus in Old Main 103 or online at www.usd.edu/CASE.cfm.
About the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation
The Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation recognizes the best academic-service learning work of university students and faculty as they partner with community groups and community agencies. Recognition comes to winners of the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Partnership Award (JCPA) or the Carter Academic-Service Entrepreneur grant (CASE). Such recognition is a powerful motivator and provides a vivid picture of excellence - and success - for scores of other applicants each year in each state where the programs are held. Hundreds of applicant organizations have received recognition through the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Award. Some have attracted more participants and, in some cases, have attracted more funding. By applying similar uniform and high standards to JRCPA and CASE selection, the programs not only recognize the best models, but inspire others to excel and achieve the status of a Carter Certified Partnership for campus-community collaboration or a Carter Certified Academic-Service Entrepreneur.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation was established in 1930 “to help people help themselves through the practical application of knowledge and resources to improve their quality of life and that of future generations.” To achieve the greatest impact, the Foundation targets its grants toward specific areas. These include: health; food systems and rural development; youth and education; and philanthropy and volunteerism. Within these areas, attention is given to exploring learning opportunities in leadership; information and communication technology; capitalizing on diversity; and social and economic community development. Grants are concentrated in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the southern African countries of Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe.
The W. K. Kellogg Foundation has provided to the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Foundation funds for use in fostering closer cooperation between American universities and their communities. The HOST Carter Academic-Service Entrepreneur grant is part of that program.
