Request for Proposals: AMP Grants:

Bringing Theory to Practice announces a new round of AMP Grants. These grants, first offered in 2019, provide funding to previous BT2P awardees for activities that amplify, disseminate, or increase the public reach of their earlier work.  AMP Grants support a range of dissemination activities, including consulting, public writing, policy reports, and media projects. Proposals may be submitted at any time, and grants are awarded on a rolling basis. Here is the new Request for Proposals.

Request for Proposals: The Way Forward Grants

The Way Forward Logo.Bringing Theory to Practice is excited to issue a Request for Proposals for a new round of multi-institutional innovation grants. Part of a larger initiative called The Way Forward, we invite collaborative projects that respond to current crises — systemic racism, the pandemic, and the economic catastrophe — and the imperative for change in higher education. Here is an overview of the larger goals of The Way Forward initiative.

Please note that all proposals must involve collaborations with at least two higher-ed institutions; they may also include partnerships with community organizations and K-12 schools.

Grant proposals are due via electronic submission to [email protected] by 5:00 pm (EST) on Monday, December 7, 2020, with the subject line “2021-2022 TWF Proposal.”  Awards will be announced by January 15, 2021. View the RFP to get started.


Call for Newsletter Submissions: Seeds of Transformation

The inaugural digital issue of the BT2P Triannual Newsletter is themed Seeds of Transformation. We are in a time of crisis and exhaustion. We are dealing with a global pandemic, confronting the long-term harms of systemic racism, enduring economic upheaval, and witnessing assaults on our democracy. Higher education faces a moment of existential threat and change. But we at BT2P are also starting to see creative responses by educators, students, and academic institutions: actions and ideas that go beyond crisis management, drawing on the reservoir of values and creativity within higher education. Seeds are being sown.

We are dedicating the Winter 2021 issue of our Newsletter to such seeds of transformation. We invite your ideas for stories that blend on-the-ground initiatives for change with reflections on this moment of crisis and how we can meet it. What are you already doing, or beginning to do, that points the way forward?

Here are links to our more detailed Call for Submissions (due Nov. 7) and the Submission Guidelines. We hope that you will consider contributing.
