Applications due April 13 by 5 p.m. Money for your work! Foundation Activity Grants are offered by The Evergreen State College Foundation Board of Governors and administered by the Academic Grants office, supporting the projects of individual students, student teams, and student-faculty teams. Last summer the board of governors (BOG) approved changes to the activity grant program and nearly doubled its annual funding for 2006-07, to a total of $20,000. The BOG also raised the maximum award per student to $1,000 and made adjustments to the selection criteria. The Foundation can award about 7 to 10 students each fall, winter and spring quarter. We expect considerable competition for these awards. Activity Grant projects are usually carried out in conjunction with academic programs and all projects must have at least one faculty sponsor.
The program has supported a variety of efforts, including theatrical productions, art projects and exhibitions, scientific research, video and film productions, implementation of sustainable agricultural practices, student literary magazines, and expenses for students to attend professional conferences to present their work.
