Program Development, Program Start-Up, and Program Initiative, and Research Project Grants

Program Development, Program Start-Up, and Program Initiative, and Research Project Grants Under BTtoP Funding Periods

Under the 2015-2017 RFP, Well-Being Research Grants of up to $10,000, plus institutional matching, were available for campuses to implement and assess a two-year research project that gives focused attention to the well-being of students, and particularly to those students traditionally underserved by higher education. Projects will, through the gathering of evidence, provide justification for the best practices for deepening and sustaining the institution's commitment to whole-person development. Of the new 2015-2017 grant awards, fifteen campuses were chosen as awardees to join the growing community of institutions dedicated to investigating and advancing student well-being and learning outcomes.
