Campaign events should help achieve the Campaign's key goals:
To promote understanding of and respect for multiple points of view on important topics related to the University community
To encourage dialogue and discussion among members of the community about issues with the potential for difference and disagreement
To create opportunities for all members of the University’s community to participate in conversations about important topics
Generally, grants are awarded in amounts of $250 to $1,500.
Some events could be funded in full, others in part.
C4C generally does not fund honoraria for outside speakers. Applicants may request funding for the following project expenses: materials, transportation, equipment, publicity, facilities, fees, catering, or other event related expenses.
Applicants must be a University of Pennsylvania student, faculty, or staff member.
Students may apply as individuals or as representatives of student organizations.
Faculty and staff may apply as individuals or as representatives of a department, center, program, or other administrative unit at Penn.
Applications from student groups that are not formally registered with the Office of Student Affairs must have a sponsoring Penn department or school.
Marketing and event planning assistance is available in addition to grants. All Campaign events should display the Campaign logo on promotional materials.
Preference will be given to:
New/creative proposals that promote the goals of the Campaign for Community through conversations reflecting multiple points of view.
Events open to all Penn students, staff, and faculty.
Interdisciplinary programs involving more than one school or department.
Grant requests will be reviewed by the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice Provost for University Life, and the Campaign for Community Steering Committee.
Every effort will be made to process applications within two weeks of receipt and/or two weeks prior to the event date.
The Steering Committee prefers to receive grant requests at least 14 days before the event date, but is willing to consider applications on a shorter timeline.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
