Footnotes:

  1. Rice has already sought funding from three external sources: AmeriCorps, The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, and the Bonner Foundation. From AmeriCorps, Rice has secured the services of a VISTA volunteer for one year, beginning in July 2006. Rice has applied for a grant of $200,000 from The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations to underwrite the first two years of operation of The Center for Civic Engagement, and Rice has joined a group of universities, led by Princeton, in applying for a grant from the Bonner Foundation in support of community-based research.
