Bates College awarded grant to fund 10 community service fellowships for students
The research areas are based on public discussion that has taken place in the last two years as part of the work of LA Excels, a partnership of 36 local institutions, including Bates College. Local citizens have identified key areas where community development work can strengthen local educational aspirations, enrich local arts and cultural opportunities, undertake neighborhood empowerment projects, such as new housing, models and downtown neighborhood development and enhance local environmental quality and recreational options through the development of green space.
The Council of Independent Colleges is an association of nearly 500 independent colleges and universities that work together to enhance private higher education’s contributions to society. The Consortium for the Advancement of Private Higher Education (CAPHE) is a grantmaking organization that assists corporations and foundations in stimulating meaningful reform in private colleges and universities.
