About the Grant
The Promoting Diversity Grant is designed to promote, support, and encourage new and collaborative diversity and social justice efforts that directly benefit undergraduate students, including but not limited to programs, projects, workshops, series, events, and other creative initiatives.
Grants of up to $5,000* are awarded four times during the fiscal year: twice during the Fall semester and twice during the Spring semester. There are two application periods during both the Fall and Spring semesters
Grants are available to campus departments, offices, and officially recognized student organizations
All grant recipients will be required to submit the results of their project's assessments to the grant committee to gauge the impact of their program/project
Assessments are due 30 days from the date of the project's completion
* Applicants may potentially be awarded more than $5,000 during a given cycle. Any remaining funds from one application and disbursement cycle are rolled into the next application and disbursement cycle but only if both cycles occur within the same fiscal year. Funds remaining after the fiscal year are NOT rolled over to the next fiscal year.
