The UC National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement is pleased to announce the Valuing Open and Inclusive Conversation and Engagement (VOICE) Grant Program. VOICE provides funding for UC students, staff, and faculty who are interested in conducting research or coordinating programs and activities that further the mission of the Center.  

Mission: Free and open discourse is essential to the mission of higher education. The Center explores how the fundamental democratic and academic principles of free speech and civic engagement should enrich the discovery and transmission of knowledge in America’s colleges and universities. Through research, advocacy, debate, and discussion, the Center is dedicated to ensuring that the next generation of leaders is prepared to understand, defend, and advance these values.

The Center is especially interested in projects that:

1. will have an impact on campus by fostering and sustaining conversations and engagement across and within campus constituencies. 
2. showcase collaboration between at least two of the three groups that are eligible to apply (student, staff, faculty). 

VOICE provides up to $5000 in funding for UC students, staff, and faculty who are interested in conducting research or coordinating programs and activities that further the mission of the Center. One goal of the program is to award grants to individuals/groups from each of the 10 UC campuses.
