Participants

More than 600 individuals from across campuses and colleges have participated in the Funded Awards Program.

There have been a total of 12 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 12)

The 2022-2023 cohort features 59 individuals and includes four interprofessional teams and representatives from Kearney, Lincoln and Omaha.
