RE: Call for Pre-proposals for the Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment
The Provost's Office is soliciting proposals from faculty, staff, and students for the spring 2010 Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment competition. This endowment helps foster the Wisconsin Idea, the philosophy that the knowledge and solutions generated at the University benefit the people of Wisconsin, our nation and the world.
Proposals are encouraged for new outreach and public engagement activities that partner with community and off-campus organizations to extend and apply our research, education, and clinical knowledge to help solve problems or take advantage of opportunities. Projects may begin on or after July 1, 2010, and last up to three years. Proposals for initiatives up to $120,000 are encouraged. This year, the endowment will grant up to $750,000 through the competition.
The Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment call for proposals involves two steps:
1. UW–Madison faculty, staff or students must first submit a pre-proposal; and
2. Individuals whose pre-proposals are accepted will be invited to submit a full proposal.
HOW TO PROCEED
Visit the Wisconsin Idea Endowment website to find complete pre-proposal guidelines, pre-proposal cover sheet, budget submission form, and budget instructions.
Pre-proposals must be signed off at the department and dean/director's levels before submission to the Office of the Provost.
