Applicants must complete the Grant Request Form. Forms are accepted electronically or by campus mail to the Grant Committee Chair. Applications must clearly detail how the proposed project/event/activity will benefit UMD women. Grants will be awarded as small grants (up to $300) or large grants ($301-$1000).
The grant committee reviews the small grants as they are received and the large grants as scheduled. After Committee action, recommendations for funding are taken to the Commission for approval of recommendations. Funds are awarded to organizations, departments, or some fiscal unit of the University for dispersal. This entire process usually takes 3-4 weeks from the time the grants are received. The Grants Committee Chair notifies applicants concerning the committee’s decision and/or CW action.
