Presidential Mini-Grants for Departmental Diversity Initiative
The Presidential Mini-Grants for Departmental Diversity Initiative is designed to foster new projects, to test out ideas and to determine what may be the seeds of growth for the University.
This long-standing program supports selected proposals that promote awareness, skills, and knowledge about issues related to race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, 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. Awards have ranged from $1,000 to $4,000 in recent years, and last year the average award was $2,500.
Application deadline is Wednesday, March 10, 2021. General guidelines and information on the application process can be found on this website.
