Mini-Grants Announcement for 2021-2022

February 10, 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I believe that encouraging diversity in all components of the Stony Brook experience contributes significantly to the quality of life on campus and inspires us to even greater accomplishments. Therefore I invite you to take part in this year's Presidential Mini-Grants for Department Diversity Initiative by participating in the application process.

The Presidential Mini-Grants for Department Diversity Initiative is designed to foster new projects, to test out ideas and to determine what may be the seeds growth for the University. This long-standing program supports selected proposals that promote awareness, skills, and knowledge about issues related to race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socio-economic status, abilities, age and/or religion. Preference will be given to proposals that are tied to the goals of the Stony Brook Plan for Equity, Inclusion and Diversity.

Drawing on a total pool of $30,000, the award amount granted will be determined by the number of grants selected and approved for funding. Grants generally range from $1,000 - $4,000.

The application deadline is Wednesday, March 10, 2021.

Thank you for taking the time to give this important initiative serious consideration.
