The CU Boulder Outreach Awards support faculty-led outreach and engagement projects that connect research, teaching and creative work with public needs. The CU Boulder Outreach Committee funds projects that respond to a direct request made by a school or community group, establish a relationship with a group or community, serve a community with limited access to CU Boulder programs, make the work of CU Boulder’s faculty accessible to the public, and/or involve CU Boulder undergraduate and graduate students in project development, implementation or evaluation.

Staff as well as undergraduate and graduate students play a crucial role in advancing these projects. The Office of the Chancellor, Office of the Provost and the Division of Continuing Education fund the awards, which are administered by our office. Award support has been used to leverage additional funding from other sources.
