Philanthropy as a Tool for Social Change (HBHE 699-spring) is a three-credit hour service-learning course offered through the Carolina Center for Public Service’s Buckley Public Service Scholars program and The Learning by Giving Program. Through this course, students learn about and experience the process of awarding grants to local agencies.
Students function as a committee and are responsible for researching the needs of North Carolina, designing grant award criteria, drafting and distributing a request for proposals, reviewing submissions and awarding $10,000 to select community organizations. This service-learning course meets the experiential education requirement and the service-learning course requirement for BPSS.
