Grant made possible by District 8 Councilman Ron Nirenbergs's discretionary city funds.
Through the generosity of the City of San Antonio the COSA Challenge Grant Program provides funds to an individual or group of students with a faculty mentor to create spaces for experiential learning in partnership with a non-profit or public sector agency in the city of San Antonio. Grants will be made to individual students or teams of students with a sponsoring faculty mentor. Grants will range from $100 – 500. Team applicants are encouraged to consider a crowdfunding effort through Launch UTSA in which the grant fund will match what is raised up to $1000.
The Center for Civic Engagement serves as a nucleus of support to students, faculty, and staff who aspire to advance the common good of San Antonio and the surrounding communities. We wish to be a university engaged with our community that educates students to be active citizens. We recognize that the advancement of scholarship through teaching and research creates positive solutions that contribute to the well-being and betterment of not only San Antonio, but the state, nation and world beyond. We hope the contributions of the UTSA community can have a lasting impact on the creation of a community that values equanimity and at the same time aspires to raise levels of economic growth and social inclusion.
