Since 2006, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the Engagement Scholarship Consortium (ESC), with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, have partnered to annually recognize the outstanding community-university engagement scholarship work of four-year public universities who have redesigned their learning, discovery, and engagement missions to become even more involved with their communities.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation Community Engagement Scholarship Awards recognize four regional projects that each receives a $5,000 cash prize, $2,500 to support the production of a two-minute video story about the partnership, and two complimentary registrations for the Engagement Scholarship Consortium Annual Conference. Regional winners become finalists in the competition for the national C. Peter Magrath Community Engagement Scholarship Award, presented by APLU and ESC. The national award winner receives a sculpture and a $20,000 prize.
The Community Engagement Scholarship Award partnership will also represent MSU in the competition for the regional W.K. Kellogg Foundation Community Engagement Scholarship Awards and the national C. Peter Magrath Community Engagement Scholarship Award. Learn more about these awards.
