Women's Giving Circle Grant Application Deadline Extended
The University of Arkansas Women's Giving Circle is accepting grant applications for programs and initiatives supporting the campus and communities across the state. Faculty and staff who wish to secure funding in fall 2020 must submit their applications by 5 p.m. on Monday, June 8. 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
- Enrich the quality of life of women and children
- 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. Grant semi-finalists will be notified in September and the final grants will be awarded at the fall voting event on Friday, Oct. 30.
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. Thereafter, applicants are welcome to submit another project. The maximum funding for any grant will be capped at $20,000.
The Women's Giving Circle was created by the founding members of the Women in Philanthropy Committee of the Campaign for the Twenty-First Century. Since 2003, the circle has awarded over $1.4 million in funding to faculty and staff members from various departments and academic units at the university. This year marks the 18th year of funding for the circle.
