Call for Concept Papers

2022 Whole Person Education Digital Content Development

The United Board invites concept papers for the development of digital content that will advance the capacity of colleges and universities to deliver whole person education (WPE) related material in innovative and effective ways. 

This grant opportunity will fund the development of unique WPE-related digital content which promotes learning both inside and outside of the classroom, especially that designed to develop empathy, social concern, civic responsibility, broad-based inquiry, critical thinking, analytical skills, and ethics.  Successful concept papers will involve or be led by scholars and trainers who have been oriented to integrated scholarship and WPE, and projects will be designed to create and integrate WPE-related digital resources into curriculum. 

Examples[1] of digital resources may include, but are not limited to:

*Completed grant projects will be shared, in whole or in part, within the United Board’s open digital library related to whole person education, planned for launch at the end of 2022. Concept papers must request funding between $10,000 (minimum) and $25,000 (maximum) to be considered.

The call for concept papers will open on July 15, 2022.  All application materials will be accessible on this date. The deadline for concept papers submission is August 15, 2022.
