Deadline: Kemper K. Knapp Bequest Proposals
November 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The Kemper K. Knapp Bequest Committee is soliciting proposals for special projects taking place in the 2019-2020 academic year.
Knapp grants are usually in the range of $500 to $5,000. According to the terms of the original bequest, the committee favors projects that cross departmental lines and have an impact on the educational and cultural life of the university community, particularly projects that benefit undergraduate students. Knapp funds are not often used for purposes that can and should be supported elsewhere, such as from regular grants or research funding, from fees charged for performances, or from the regular university budget. Nor is the committee inclined to support exhibitions or lectures because other campus committees (e.g., Anonymous Fund Committee, Lectures Committee) have them as a central funding target. The committee encourages registered student organizations to apply, but departmental/program co-sponsorship is required.
This fall, the Knapp Committee will consider applications for projects taking place during the next (2019-2020) academic year. The deadline for applications is Friday, November 9, 2018. Please submit your application as a single pdf document to the Office of the Secretary of the Faculty at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should be aware that funds are limited.
