Detroit Mercy employees are encouraged to partner with creative and passionate students in designing service-learning projects through Ford Community Corps Partnerships (FCCP) grants. FCCP grants provide funds to support student-faculty teams and allocate money to the project itself or to pay students to coordinate initiatives. Some past projects include:
- A chemistry student providing STEM-based presentations to an afterschool program
- A business writing student creating Canva design templates to help a non-profit organization enhance social media presence
- See the full list of FCCP grant-funded projects online.
FCCP grant proposal templates will be made available by Mid-March and proposal deadlines will be late April or early May. If you are interested, contact FCCP Coordinator Brittany Mackie at email@example.com or mask up and safely visit Jane & Walter O. Briggs Building Room 212.
