Current Government Funded Grant Projects

National Science Foundation
  Carroll University Greene Field Station (GFS)
  Carroll University has received $244,055 from the National Science Foundation Improvements in Facilities, Communications, and Equipment at Biological Field Stations and Marine Laboratories (FSML) program to create a research and education center at the Carroll University Greene Field Station (GFS). Despite the lack of on-site facilities for research and appropriate infrastructure to support data acquisition, management, and dissemination, Carroll faculty and students have conducted research at the GFS outdoor laboratory since the 1970s. The renovation of an existing building into a research facility will expand research agendas, provide infrastructure needed for outside collaboration and community use, and offer space for the university to introduce the experimenting across the curriculum initiative, a groundbreaking project that will integrate research and education, educating all students in scientific literacy. The research and education center will also provide the foundation needed for Carroll faculty to conduct ongoing projects both in ecological and pedagogical research.
  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Expansion Program
  STEP Initiative – Engineering in Waukesha County
  On September 1, 2012 Carroll University began a five-year, $446,123 project funded by the National Science Foundation intended to increase the number of students pursuing careers in engineering, especially women. The project builds on Carroll’s partnerships with UW-Platteville and UW-Milwaukee and supports new collaborations with local high schools and industry. High school and undergraduate students have the opportunity to participate in hands on, real-world projects supplied by industry partners. The award also supports the development of mentoring programs, leadership training, and a living-learning community for future engineers.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  HRSA Nursing Workforce Diversity
  In 2014, Carroll University was awarded a three-year, $762,535 Nursing Workforce Diversity Grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA). The grant will fund the creation of the Carroll University Academic Success Program in Nursing (ASPIN). The program will create a pipeline of K-12 students from medically underserved areas, who will participate in pre-entry activities and programs that promote health education and career opportunities. Additionally, the program will provide scholarship and academic support services to underrepresented students enrolled in Carroll's nursing program.
  HRSA Training in Primary Care and Medicine
  Physician Assistant Training in Primary Care
  In 2010, Carroll University was awarded a five-year $967,687 grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The award supports the design, implementation and assessment of a new cultural competency component of the curriculum, which focuses on developing students’ abilities to provide effective treatment to minority populations.
U.S. Department of Education
  Title III Strengthening Institutions Program
  Pathways to Success
  The Title III program funded Carroll University’s $1.9 million five-year project that began in 2009. The Pathways to Success project supports three initiatives: 1) faculty training in engaging pedagogies; 2) advisor training and development; and 3) student success and retention monitoring.
Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
  State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG)
  Preparing Elementary Dual Certification Candidates
  In 2014, Carroll University received a five-year $50,000 State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG) - Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) Focus on PLC's mini grant award; one of only nine awarded. The grant will help fund the project titled: Teacher Residency PLC: Preparing Elementary Dual Certification Candidates. If Carroll's projected performance meets achievement measures, there is potential for an additional one to two years of funding.
  Pre-College Scholarship Program
  Horizontes en Carroll
  In 2013, Carroll University received a two-year, $39,000 award from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for 45 disadvantaged students in grades 9-12 to gain an increased awareness of the value of college education and the financial resources available to support college attendance. This one-week summer program combines classroom instruction and experiential learning that is designed to strengthen academic skills, develop motivation and self-esteem, and initiate mentoring relationships with college students.
