At OWU, you connect the classroom and the real world. A Theory-to-Practice Grant could fund your original research, internship, or creative project anywhere in the world.

You can bring learning to life with an OWU Theory-to-Practice Grant (TPG). Initiated in 2009, Theory-to-Practice Grants enable students, faculty, and staff to receive University funding to support academic and community service issues of special interest.

Recent grants have funded projects ranging from studying the literary politics of Ireland, to exploring sustainable tropical agriculture in Ecuador, to building rapport between cultures while interning with the East Meets West Foundation in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

The deadline for the submission of proposals for Spring 2017 is Wednesday, 15 February. All submitted proposals must be complete and submitted by 5 PM on this date.  All co-applicant forms must also be submitted by this deadline.

To date, the program has awarded nearly $1.67 million in University funds to the campus community, enabling 800 OWU students, faculty, and staff to conduct research or complete projects in 62 countries (including the U.S.) and 25 states/territories, including Ohio.

The TPG program is funded through the generous support of the President’s Circle, a group of donors who have made special gifts to fund initiatives related to Ohio Wesleyan’s Strategic Plan.
