MSU Community Engagement Award Application


The Mississippi State University Excellence in Community Engagement Award recognizes outstanding accomplishment in community engagement in the categories of Community-Engaged Service, Community-Engaged Teaching and Learning, Community- Engaged Research, and Scholarship of Engagement. Community Engagement describes collaboration between MSU and partnering communities for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity. Communities are broadly defined as groups of people affiliated by geographic proximity, special interests, or situational similarities at the local, regional/state, national, or global levels.

The most outstanding example of a community engagement project or program in each of these four areas will receive a $5,000 grant to further community engagement within Mississippi State’s threefold mission of learning, research, and service. Please refer to page 6 of this guide for details on submitting a project.
