Madison Education Partnership's fall 2019 request for proposals due Sept. 23

September 13, 2019

The Madison Education Partnership (MEP) has opened its request for proposals for Fall 2019.  

MEP is a research-practice partnership between the School of Education’s Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) and the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD). The Partnership runs an annual funding cycle for UW–Madison faculty and staff to encourage them to work with the school district. 

An overarching goal of the Partnership is to identify actions the district could take to improve school climate. They invite UW-Madison faculty and staff to propose research related to school climate in MMSD, especially the processes that shape school climate and the impact of school climate on student academic, behavioral, social emotional, and health outcomes.

The Partnership will award two grants up to $50,000 each. The deadline for submission is Monday, Sept. 23.
