Conville Endowment for Community Engaged Teaching and Research 
The Conville Endowment for Community Engaged Teaching and Research was established to honor Dr. and Mrs. Richard L. Conville and to support and reward excellence in community-engaged teaching and research. Multiple funding awards are given each year to faculty. 

Service-Learning Faculty Fellows
CCE accepts 5-6 faculty each year to participate in the Service-Learning Faculty Fellows program, in which faculty meet weekly during the spring semester to learn about service-learning pedagogy and redesign an academic course to include a service-learning component. Faculty Fellows receive $2400 to teach the initial service-learning course, which can either be paid as direct compensation to the faculty member (minus fringe benefits and taxes) or paid to the faculty member’s school (full amount). 

Eagle SPUR Community Engaged Research Funding (for undergraduate research)
Eagle SPUR provides funding for undergraduates to conduct community-engaged research and creative projects in which university and community members work collaboratively to address critical societal issues. Community-engaged projects directly incorporate community partners' expertise and lived experience into a research or creative project.

Best Community Engaged Research or Creative Activity at UGS (for undergraduates)
One undergraduate student will receive recognition and a $300 prize for presenting the best community-engaged research or creative activity at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium presented by the Drapeau Center for Undergraduate Research.
