We are not currently accepting applications. The next anticipated grant submission will be the fall term 2014. Faculty will be notified by a global e-mail. 

We suggest that you type your proposal in a document you can save and then transfer the information to the web form so that you will have a record. Number of students and total funds requested must be a number. Do not enter dollar signs, dashes, letters, special symbols: just numerals. Please do not use tables as the formatting is lost and the results hard to decipher.
