New for the 2012-13 Fiscal Year

The UW System Administration Office of Academic Affairs is pleased to announce a new opportunity for funding for FY2012-13, the Growth Agenda for Wisconsin Grants Program. This grants program seeks to fund proposals that will result in substantive programmatic and/or institution-wide change (single or multiple institutions) in support of institutional and systemwide goals for the Growth Agenda for Wisconsin. The grants program will also support national, regional, statewide meetings or conferences that will focus on topics that are aligned with the Growth Agenda for Wisconsin.
For FY2012-13, Academic Affairs Grant programs have been consolidated based on the recommendations from the President’s Advisory Committee on the Roles of UW System Administration and input from the other institutional administrators. In the past, Academic Affairs operated twelve distinct grant programs, listed below:
