Funding opportunities


Funding for UNM students and faculty: We fund community-engaged work through two annual funding competitions (info on fellowships and classroom fund pages)In both competitions, priority is given to applicants committed to principles of community engagement that value local knowledge and support community-led work. 

Funding for community partners: We also directly fund work with community partners, primarily through external funding. If you have a project idea and would like to discuss the potential for working with us to find external funding through a university-community partnership, contact us!
