The Impacts of Seed Grants as Incentives for Engagement
Zuiches, James J.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v17 n4 p57-73 2013
This article reports on an assessment of North Carolina State University's Extension, Engagement, and Economic Development Seed Grant Program (2004-2009). The research questions addressed the extent to which the grants (1) stimulated faculty interest in the engagement and outreach mission of the university; (2) served as incentives for faculty members to develop programs resulting in new partnerships with government, nonprofits, private sector, and other academic units; and (3) served as a platform to build a larger externally funded program of engagement and outreach activities as measured through grant proposals and awards.
