The deadline to apply for an HxCommunities Flexible Funding Opportunity grant is fast approaching but we are pleased to continue receiving applications from members doing valuable work in their classrooms and institutions.
We have awarded approximately $355,000 in grants since this opportunity opened in January 2021. Our latest grant recipients are working to identify and provide solutions that address challenges to viewpoint diversity, constructive disagreement, and open inquiry. Members in the Mid-Atlantic region are hosting student workshops and classes, as well as lesson sharing for educators; members at Brigham Young University are training students to facilitate difficult conversations on campus; and a member in Australia is using a variety of data collection methods to inform ideas for improving policy and practices in higher education.
Read about these projects below and – if HxA can help with efforts taking place in your classroom or institution – please consider applying for your own FFO grant. Time is running out but funding is still available to support activities taking place before July 15, 2022.
