IN FOCUS Funding Requests


The IN FOCUS program is charged with allocating funds to support curricular and co-curricular activities that enhance student exploration of the IN FOCUS theme for the year.  The theme for the 2015-2016 academic year is Poverty & Inequality. Activities for potential funding may include guest speakers, presenters, exhibits, performances, hands-on learning opportunities, and other programs.

Budget resources are expected to be limited to $100-$200 per request, with 10-20 funded requests per year. To apply for funding, complete and submit this funding request form. Requests will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the academic year, with review and response within 2-weeks of receipt.  In addition, funding requests for activities that dovetail with the Center of Investigation for the upcoming academic year will be accepted starting in the spring of 2016.  Please direct questions to the IN FOCUS co-directors, Sonia Aziz and Nicole Tabor.

While planning these activities, organizers are encouraged to (1) review the date, time and location of their activity with the HUB desk and (2) to list the activity or event with IN FOCUS and the Public Relations Office by completing and submitting the IN FOCUS event form

All successful funding requests will be required to submit (to co-directors Sonia Aziz and Nicole Tabor) a brief summary of the program and evaluation of its outcomes within two weeks following the activity.
