    Multicultural Learning Grants

    Grants are now open for 2018-2019 academic year!

    The Multicultural Learning Grants are sponsored by the Office for Multicultural Learning and the Erkman Endowment Fund. These grants focus on collaborative efforts to enhance multicultural learning and education at SCU and on SCU campus. For a sample of an ideal proposal click here. All awarded grants are reimbursements, after the event has occurred and proper forms have been submitted.   

    For STUDENTS, the goal of the funding is to support students and student organizations in creating programs and projects designed in collaboration with more than one other cultural organization, designed to outreach to a diverse audience, and/or designed with a focus on multicultural education. These grants are capped at $350. Before submitting your application, email to set up an interest meeting. Apply here.

    For FACULTY and STAFF, the financial resources generated from this fund should be directed to academic discourse and public conversation that specifically, intentionally, and equally addresses the understanding and inclusion of those most often marginalized by their ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and/or physical and mental abilities. These grants are capped at $500.  Apply here.
