Conference Registration Scholarships

Conference Registration Scholarships of up to $1,000.00 are available to students, professional staff, and faculty members presenting at scholarly conferences. Presentations should relate to the Indiana Campus Compact's mission to support higher education's effort to develop students into well-informed, engaged citizens and to serve as a catalyst for campuses and communities to improve people's lives through service-learning and civic engagement initiatives. Preference will be given to proposals that are a direct result of an ICC sponsored event or grant funding.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, but must be received six weeks prior to the scheduled conference. Applicants will be notified of approval status within two weeks of official submission to Indiana Campus Compact. Scholarships are available on a reimbursement basis only and cannot be used toward Indiana Campus Compact sponsored events (i.e. Service Engagement Summit) and can only be used to fund registration fees.

Download application here.

Funding is provided by The Lilly Endowment Inc.

Campus Compact annual member survey now open

Campus Compact president Andrew Seligsohn announced that the annual membership survey is now open and will remain open until December 20, 2014.

Each member campus has designated a Community Service Director to be the staff liaison to Indiana Campus Compact.  Those liaisons received the announcement from Dr. Seligsohn and will be the contact person for the survey on each campus. We will be following up with everyone who received a survey link. Although there is only one contact person per campus, multiple offices will need to provide data for the most accurate campus portrait.

If you have questions about who is in that role on your campus, please feel free to contact Liza Blomquist, Program Director for Communication and Member Development at 317-274-6500 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
