Grant Available to Help Students Support Diversity
The University of Montana Diversity Advisory Council offers grants of up to $1,000 to help student groups host events and activities that promote various diversity causes.
Grant proposals must be written by UM students. Events must promote and enrich diversity and impact both the campus and Missoula community. Students groups who submit proposals must have sought and received partial funding from other sources. Two or more student groups may collaborate for a proposed diversity event.
Student groups most likely to receive funding educate and celebrate ethnicity and culture, enhance the link between language and culture, raise awareness of ability issues, broaden perspectives about gender and identity and orientation, offer new perspectives and world views, and invite other students and community members to view, engage and participate in both education and celebratory events and activities.
Proposals will be reviewed by a Diversity Advisory Council committee, and recipients and nonrecipients will be notified as quickly as possible.
The deadline to submit proposals for spring semester 2010 is Friday, Feb. 26. Spring semester grants must be used before July 1.
Proposals for fall semester 2010 must be submitted by Friday, Oct. 15. Fall semester grant funds must be used before July 1, 2011.
Students may submit proposals online at http://life.umt.edu/diversity/minigrant.php.
