Mini-Grants Announcement for 2022
February 22, 2022
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
To encourage campus-wide efforts that promote, enhance and celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), the Presidential Mini-Grants for Department Diversity Initiative was designed to foster projects that advance innovative approaches to DEI at Stony Brook.
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, class 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.
Awards will provide seed funding for ideas that have the potential to catalyze long range transformative change in the SBU campus environment
Priority will be given to ongoing efforts, as opposed to one-time events
Proposals should describe in detail a plan for sustainability
Projects should not be a part of existing DEI plans/effort
Awardees must provide a summary of the project at completion
Therefore, I invite you to take part in this year’s Presidential Mini-Grants for Department Diversity Initiative by participating in the application process.
Drawing on the total pool of $30,000, the 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 23, 2022.
Thank you for taking the time to give this important initiative serious consideration.
