The Women’s Education and Leadership Fund (WELFund) invites students, faculty, and staff to submit grant proposals for the 2013–14 grant cycle.
We invite proposals ranging in dollar amounts from $2,000 to $10,000 for projects to be implemented between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015.
Proposals will be accepted from students (encouraged to work with faculty or staff mentor/sponsor), staff, and faculty (active and emeriti), working alone or in partnership with others. The submission deadline is Dec. 1, 2013.
Each proposal should directly address one or more of the following:
• Enhance the education of women
• Advance women as scholars and as the subject of scholarship
• Cultivate and sustain women’s leadership skills
• Increase awareness about women as individuals and in communities
Preference will be given to proposals that:
• Represent disciplines where women are underrepresented
• Benefit a significant number of women and/or girls and demonstrate significant benefit to the University community
• Demonstrate capacity to increase public awareness about the University and its contributions to women’s education through publications, presentations or other public display of results
• Seek to involve additional co-sponsors and /or use grants from WELFund as seed money for larger proposals to external granting agencies
• Initiate innovative collaborations within and beyond the University
• Actively involve female University of Hartford students and enrich their learning/leadership opportunities
• Support and/or synergize with WELFund’s student leadership program
