Diversity Catalyst Seed Grant


The Chief Diversity Office is pleased to announce that we are accepting proposals for the Diversity Catalyst Seed Grant. The Diversity Catalyst Seed Grant supports projects and programs with an immediate impact enhancing the diversity goals of the University of Iowa's Strategic Plan 2016-2021. 

If your proposal will advance cross-cultural understanding, strengthen positive inter-group relations and promote a welcoming learning environment, and will benefit the campus directly, we would like to hear from you! 

Applicants must be currently enrolled at or employed by the University of Iowa. All proposed projects and programs must be new initiatives. Funds may not be used to support ongoing projects and programs. We anticipate awarding up to five (5) Seed Grants with a maximum of $1000 each.  

Proposals are due November 17, 2017.
