*Knopf/Random House provides funding for our high school
winners on a yearly basis.
The purpose of a Seed Grant is to 1) Provide internal funding for the initial stages of a new interdisciplinary and collaborative work that will generate date to facilitate the development of external grant applications to government agencies or private foundations by investigators or 2) Facilitate the development of a new and novel direction of creative work and scholarship that will enhance the national and international reputation of CUNY.
In 2012, Poetry Outreach received a SEED grant in collaboration with Elizabeth Rorschach from the School of Education. The purpose of this grant is to fund an expansion of the Poetry Outreach Center into more NYC schools, and to forge a stronger partnership between the Center and the School of Education. An additional goal is to establish, though publications, conferences and other means of dissemination, the Poetry Outreach Center as a consultative and training resource for local and regional colleges.
