Students and faculty looking to impact their community can now apply for the Community Renewal Fund, hosted by the College of Public Affairs and Community Service.

The Community Renewal Fund is a grant open to any UNT student. Those awarded will partner with a PACS faculty member and a community member to address a social issue. The aim is to improve the community in some way. PACS faculty and staff are eligible for funding as well without having to accompany a student.

“Community renewal is a social innovation fund to strengthen communities and build leaders for our future,” PACS Dean Thomas Evenson said.

“Community” includes local, state, national and global-level proposals. Community-based projects, research and internships all qualify for funding. Students and staff that are awarded the grant must submit reports halfway through program completion and again when all funds are used.

ACS Director of Research and Development Courtney Banatoski said a maximum of five awards ranging from $500 to $5,000 will be given to those who qualify. She said applicants must present an implementation plan to convey how their idea will service the community.

Applications are due Dec. 1 and are available on the PACS website.
