Two awards cycles – application deadlines April 1 and Sept. 30
Funds are available during two awards cycles each year, with the application deadlines of April 1 and Sept. 30. Projects must occur at least 30 days after the application deadline, and applicants are encouraged to apply at least a semester ahead for upcoming programs if possible.
Applications are evaluated on their significance, originality, and potential impact on the campus community. Projects/programs of major impact, smaller projects, multi-year projects, and art acquisitions may all be considered for funding. While collaboration with community groups and organizations beyond CSU is welcome, grant requests must be submitted by CSU faculty, staff, or students and have the sponsorship of a CSU department, office, or organization.
All proposals will also be reviewed for demonstrated responsibility and thoughtfulness in project planning, budget development, and potential for successful implementation. Priority may be given to proposals that demonstrate strong departmental or unit support and a variety of funding sources. Incomplete applications (including those that are missing required signatures) will not be considered.
