For the second year, Iowa Campus Compact is offering a unique opportunity for faculty interested in public scholarship, engagement, and service-learning.

Selected Fellows also receive a $1,000 stipend to improve or expand an engaged scholarship course, program, project, or partnership.
Faculty interested in developing and expanding their engaged scholarship practice from all disciplines and professional schools from Iowa Campus Compact member campuses are welcome to apply.
Applications are due April 25, 2014 and most activities begin in Fall 2014.
