Winning proposals will receive awards ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, with priority given to creative, high-impact programs, such as arts festivals, compelling public speakers, conferences, workshops and community engagement activities.
Project proposals must be for Winter Session 2015 and should be submitted as a single PDF no later than Sept. 30 to Laura Gleason, assistant to the vice president for student life, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals must not exceed five typed pages and must include the following:
• description of the project, including intended audience, size and location;
• how the project will further student learning and foster a more diverse and stimulating educational and/or social environment during Winter Session;
• estimated budget identifying fees and production costs, including identification of funds and in-kind subsidy from any departments, colleges or student organization; and
• plans for assessment and evaluation.
Award recipients will be required to submit a one-page summary of the results of the project, including the number of students who participated and a summary of their feedback.
Proposals will be reviewed by a committee comprised of faculty, administrators and students. Decisions will be announced by Oct. 15.
Funding through a Unidel grant is available for Winter Sessions 2015, 2016 and 2017. Proposals and awards in 2016 and 2017 may be for new programming or for the continuation of programming funded for Winter Session 2015.
