Trustees' Council Grants

The Trustees' Council of Penn Women invites members of the University community to apply to its grant program. Grants in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $5000 will be made to individuals or organizations selected by The council's Grant Committee.

The grant program is potentially available to an individual who, or organization which, promotes "women's issues..the quality of undergraduate and graduate life for women...the institutional advancement of women...the physical, emotional and psychological well-being of women."

The Council is inclined to give favorable consideration to projects, that

  • affect a broad segment of the University population,
  • move the University community to a higher awareness of women's issues,
  • provide seed money for pilot programs that show potential for becoming ongoing self supporting programs.

For applications: Allison Cannady-Smith at 3533 Locust Walk; phone 898-7811. Applications must be submitted by February 1, 1998; awards will be announced in April and grants will be awarded after July 1, 1998.
