Event Grant Proposals

Faculty and staff are invited to apply for up to $750 in funds for a Common Experience event planned for fall 2017 or spring 2018.

The 2017-18 Common Experience theme, “The Search for Justice: Our Response to Crime in the 21st Century,” aims to engage students in a thoughtful conversation about laws, crime, punishment, and justice that will have a lifetime impact. The event grants are intended to foster cross-disciplinary dialogues about this Common Experience.

The event grant proposal form is available via the button at the bottom of this page. For additional information, contact Common Experience director Twister Marquiss (

Proposals will be evaluated on:

» the relationship to the Common Experience theme
» the number of co-sponsors providing financial support
» the potential for continued dialogue about the Common Experience theme
» the diversity and size of the anticipated audience
» the publicity plan for the event

The evaluation committee will look favorably upon proposals that reflect collaboration across university areas through joint sponsorship and shared funding. Funds may not be used for the purchase of food.

Please submit your completed proposal via the webpage / form linked below before 5 p.m. on Friday, September 8.

All applicants will be notified by September 18 regarding the status of their proposals. All funded applicants must provide a brief follow-up report to the committee within one month of the event.
