Proposals should include work that supports the guiding priorities for the university and that falls within the scope of the Women's Giving Circle's priorities:
- Support and promote scholarship, research and service

- Encourage outreach and engagement in Arkansas
Please visit the Women's Giving Circle website to download the grant application packet, review the process and see a list of past recipients.

Beginning with the 2016 Grant Cycle, the Women's Giving Circle instituted a two-year funding rule. No applicant may receive funding for the same project for more than two consecutive years.
