Fund Restrictions

Grant awards will generally not exceed $5,000.  Compelling proposals with budgets that exceed the cap may occasionally be funded, although those needing larger sources of support are advised to seek matching funds from other sources. Funds are to be used for the exclusive purpose of promoting the daily value of diversity on campus and in the community.  Expenditures are subject to all restrictions applying to state funds. 

Limited non-state funds are available for food items, and other expenses, which may not be purchased with state funds.  Requests for food purchases will be considered.  Funding for food expenses will not exceed $500, and will be based on availability.

Awards may be requested in consecutive years but first-time applicants meeting the fund criteria will be given priority.
