New Harmony Outreach and Engagement Fund

The New Harmony Outreach and Engagement Fund (NHOE) is a project development fund established in 2010 to provide underwriting, in full or in part, to encourage and support University of Southern Indiana faculty, staff, or student outreach or engagement initiatives in and around New Harmony, Indiana.

Projects may take the form of applied research, service learning, technical support, consulting, internships or coops, class projects, or other activities that are designed to produce a work product that is mutually beneficial to a New Harmony partner as well as the USI representative, Historic New Harmony, and the University. Each project must have an identified New Harmony partner and is to be designed and completed in consultation with the staff of Historic New Harmony. Projects should have specified outcomes that are measureable upon completion of the project.

Funding is to be made available up to a maximum of $20,000 per year. Funds are to be awarded on a competitive basis. It is expected that up to four grants may be awarded each year. The application deadline will be early November for projects that may begin the following summer. Project Guidelines and Application Materials

The Fund will be managed by a committee chaired by the director of Historic New Harmony. For more information, including student inquiries about internship opportunities, contact Missy Parkison, Community Engagement Manager, 812.682.4488 or mparkison@usi.edu.
