Funding Request Form
The Commission for Women has limited funding available to support programmatic efforts of campuses, student organizations, and official faculty/staff groups. In general, the Commission gives priority to applications from organizations dedicated to enhancing the climate of diversity at Penn State. Decisions are made by the Executive Committee with input when appropriate from the full Commission membership and will be on an individual basis and determined by need, appropriateness to commission goals, and available funds. The Commission may require reporting back on the outcomes of the programs, a presentation to the Commission, or similar as a condition of funding.
In general, the Commission will not award grants for:
- Conference attendance
- General operating funds
The maximum request is $250 per group, or $300 per campus liaison. One request per organization per year. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Requests for funding are accepted throughout the academic year; however, they must be received no less than sixty days prior to the event/program. A member of the Commission will contact the organization if more information is needed. Every effort will be made to notify applicants of decisions before the event date.
