2018 Innovation Grant Application Deadlines Announced

Purpose of the Innovation Grant Funding System

The Grant Funding System (GFS) in the Office of the Vice Provost and Chief Diversity Officer (OVPCDO) and the Division of Diversity, Equity and Educational Achievement (DDEEA) provides small grant allocations to support innovative projects.

What are we Looking For in Your Application?

Capacity-building platforms should continue to build upon the UW–Madison diversity framework, Forward Together, which seeks to help members of our campus and community be more equitable, inclusive, and diverse, both on and beyond our campus. Such efforts will demonstrate the ability to build our institutional capacity in support of a diverse, inclusive, and respectful environment for all. Examples of capacity-building activities include the development and dissemination of knowledge on race, ethnicity, culture and indigeneity through research, teaching, and performance.

Funding Amounts

The Innovation GFS strategically shares resources with campus and community partners in “start up” or one-time funding grants. Typical award amounts are up to $5,000. Innovation GFS is Now Active
