2010 Diversity Fund: March 1
February 16, 2010, Volume 56, No. 22

The Diversity Fund (Almanac December 8, 2009) supports implementation of schools’ strategic plans to support the presence of underrepresented groups, research on diversity in higher education, and projects that diversify the campus. The intention is to seed innovative projects which, if successful, can then be supported by schools, centers and extramural funding. Multi-year projects will be considered and, although the amount of funding provided will vary, most awards will not exceed $30,000 per year. Priority consideration will be given to projects with strong prospects for sustainability, as reflected in matching financial commitments from schools or centers, extramural support or well-articulated plans to seek such support.
