Phoenix Cares emergency grants available

For two years, UW-Green Bay participated in an Ascendium DASH grant that was able to award emergency funds to students in need to help cover non-academic expenses and allow them to continue with their education. The grant was very successful, but it unfortunately came to an end this summer.

Campus has been working to develop an emergency grant for UWGB. The logistics of managing the grant have taken some time to figure out, but that process is now in place, and the Provost was able to provide some money to support the grant. For more information on the Emergency Grant, please visit the Phoenix Cares Emergency Grant web page.

If you know of a student who may benefit from the emergency grant, now or in the future, please encourage them to apply for the grant. Please note that there are different procedures depending on the student’s home campus. Students on the Green Bay campus may submit inquiries about the grant to emergencygrant@uwgb.edu.  Students on the Marinette, Manitowoc, or Sheboygan campuses (which still have access to the Ascendium grant) should submit applications through the link on the Phoenix Cares Emergency Grant web page.

Reminder: Applications for Online and Hybrid Program Development Grant due Friday, May 3

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) is writing with a reminder that for applications to this year’s Online and Hybrid Program Development Grant are due Friday, May 3, 2019. The objective of this grant is to provide a means for campus leaders to build, re-furbish, enhance or re-tool online programs. These programs can be groups of courses, be it established programs – such as major – or those which serve a common curricular function – such as capstone courses or – as with last year’s recipients – writing intensive courses. In scaling up from the course level to the group level, the Provost’s Office seeks to build on the good work done by the campus community in meeting the challenge of the Quality Initiative from the last round of HLC accreditation. Far from having the energy of Quality Matters dissipate, this grant program seeks to carry that work forward and energize the campus anew. You may find the application form on the website along with information to guide you along the application process. As questions arise, please do not hesitate to contact the Center at catl@uwgb.edu.
