Announcement of Availability for Spring 2013
The People’s Endowment Board at the University of Alaska Fairbanks is pleased to announce the availability of funds for Spring 2013.
The People’s Endowment was established at the UA Foundation in 1986 with the intent to provide a source of funds for projects that will improve UAF but would likely remain unfunded due to institutional priorities. Grants are intended to be used for a special project or to fill a critical need at UAF. Proposals will be accepted from UAF faculty, staff, and students. All proposals will be submitted to the People’s Endowment Board for review and selection.
Deadline: The deadline for receipt of complete proposals is April 2, 2013. Proposals received after 5 p.m. of the deadline date will not be considered. Successful recipients will be notified late April.
Maximum Grant Amount:$5,000
The board may fund more than one grant depending on available funds and amounts requested. Requests for smaller amounts or partial funding will be considered.
Proposals must be submitted in the provided template format. Proposals should contain evidence that the funded project will provide a margin of excellence that could provide support or assistance to improve the overall quality or stability of university programs and efforts.
Projects funded through PE from Spring 2012-Fall 2012: Arctic Gardeners, Midnight Sun Writer’s Series, Permafrost Literary Journal, the Sikuliaq project, Ethics Bowl, 2nd Annual Celebration of Writing, Innocent Eye: The Africa Photographs of Adrina Knutson, and many more.
Examples of projects not likely to receive funding include scholarships or pure research projects, for which there are other funding opportunities available. In general, grants will not fund projects that are part of normal university activities.
To apply, you must submit the proposal template provided which includes the following information:
· Title and general description including outline of problem to be solved; how will PE funding fill a critical need or improve UAF?
· Detail of budget requested, including other grants sought and awarded/denied.
· Student groups interested in applying for a grant must include a faculty mentor who will assists in overseeing and guiding the project.
· Applicant contact information, including name, address, phone number and e-mail address, and university affiliation.
