Engaged Learning Fellowship Template
A successful ELF proposal is a well-articulated project description that includes eight items of information: title, statement, purpose, description with goals, methodology, timeline, bibliography, and mentor approval. A successful ELF proposal is developed with mentor input.
A funding request lets Engaged Learning know what supplies are needed for the project.
Engaged Learning disperses up to $2000 in reimbursements for approved expenses.
