Diversity Innovation Funding Project Annnouncement

This is the initial announcement of a new initiative for SP 21 which is being supported through the Institute for Cultural Unity.

The Diversity Innovation Funding Project is a collaborative competitive granting opportunity for teams of students and professionals (staff, faculty, administrators) to propose projects to advance community, collaboration, and education for the Alfred University community through targeted programs, series, or events.

The Institute for Cultural Unity and its sponsors are committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for all members of the Alfred University community. To that end they have provided fiscal resources to the initiation of the Diversity Innovation Funding Project for Spring 2021.

On January 25, a formal Request for Proposals (RFP) will be launched. At that time teams of students and professionals will be able to submit proposals to the review committee for consideration for funding. The range of support can vary from $300-$700. The goal for Spring 2021 proposal window is to support 3-5 projects, programs and/or events for the Fall 2021 semester.

The proposal announcement (Attachment 1) and a listing of sample/exemplar projects (Attachment 2) are included with this posting.

Any questions can be directed to Brian Saltsman (saltsman@alfred.edu)
