By David Procter

The engagement incentive grants are due April 1.  

The office of the provost and the Center for Engagement and Community Development announce the engagement incentive grant program. The engagement incentive grants are seed grants designed to assist faculty, K-State Research and Extension specialists and agents to become more fully engaged in teaching, research and outreach.
