The Teagle Foundation awards grants to tax-exempt 501(c)3 organizations only. Our grantees include residential liberal arts colleges, community colleges, comprehensive institutions, research universities, community-based organizations, non-profit organizations, higher education associations and consortia, and disciplinary associations. Institutions and organizations of particular interest to us are those that:
explicitly put engaged student learning in the liberal arts at the center of their mission;
allocate their resources to sustain this mission;
have stable enrollments and finances;
achieve good graduation rates, typically 65% or more after six years,
systematically assess student progress.
If your institution does not meet these criteria and you would nonetheless like to be part of a significant multi-institutional project, we encourage you to stay apprised of the work of national and regional college associations and consortia.
Please note that given our modest resources and interest in extending our support as widely as possible, we generally refrain from providing more than one active grant to an institution at a time.
The Foundation does not make grants to individuals.
