Apply for Grants

Funding Update
All grant funding has been fully awarded for the 2018-2019 academic year. Applications for Fall 2019 events will open in June.

Applications are accepted on a rolling semesterly basis. Applications for Fall events (events taking place before January 1) open in June, while applications for Spring events (events taking place on or after January 1) open in October. All applications received by a given application due date will be reviewed on the corresponding review date according to the chart below, so long as funding is still available. Please be aware that applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, and there is no guarantee that funding will last until the end of the school year.

Please note that the application due dates listed below are the latest possible date that an application can be submitted, based on the event/project date. We recommend that applications are submitted at least one grant cycle prior to your final deadline. Familiarize yourself with the Grant Process Overview to determine the most appropriate time for your group to complete an application. Please note that applying close to the date of your event could mean that your group will not receive awarded money until after the event occurs if there is any delay in the review process.
