Participants

More than 500 individuals from across campuses and colleges have participated in the Funded Awards Program.

There have been a total of 11 cohorts since the Funded Awards Program began in 2013. Over time, the program has evolved to encompass both faculty and student participants.

This has proven to be a highly successful collaborative partnership where faculty lead the projects with the commitment to incorporate the e-modules into their courses and consult with students to generate creative ideas; in turn, students offer engagement options and content development skills.

Current Projects & Participants (Cohort 11)

The 2021-2022 cohort features 76 individuals and includes three interprofessional teams and representatives from Kearney, Lincoln and Omaha.
