Experiential Learning Seed Grant
DCAL’s Experiential Learning Seed Grant catalyzes the creation and expansion of intentional, reflective, applied learning opportunities across the institution with one-year pilot funding, dedicated campus partnerships, expert professional development, and a cohort-based model for project development. Through this grant program, DCAL engages students, faculty, and co-curricular partners in the process of seeding imaginative, high-impact ideas that have potential to grow into viable models for integrating experiential learning as a core component of the Dartmouth experience. From 2015-17, DCAL received 69 proposals requesting over $1,480,000 in experiential learning funds. To date, DCAL has awarded 42 grants totaling $690,179 in experiential learning seed funding to projects in 20 Arts and Sciences departments, 7 co-curricular centers, and all 3 professional schools. The 2018 Seed Grant proposal portal will be live soon - and proposals will be due by Friday, March 16.
