Encouraging diversity is a key component that contributes to the quality of life on campus. The Presidential Mini-Grants for Departmental Diversity Initiatives help bring to fruition the ideas that enable the University to adapt to the changing needs of our community. They are designed to foster the projects that are the seeds of growth for the University, which will help us improve our research and work together with greater understanding.
Drawing on a total pool of $30,000, the award amount granted will be determined by the number of grants selected and approved for funding. Preference will be given to proposals that promote awareness, skills, and knowledge about issues related to race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, abilities, age and/or religion. Each Mini-Grant recipient will be recognized at the Annual Awards Dinner.
The application deadline is Friday, February 26, 2016. Click here to download the application form.
