Trustees' Council Grants

The Trustees' Council of Penn Women invites members of the University community to apply to its 2001 Grant Program. Grants in amounts ranging from $1,000 - $5,000 will be made to individuals or organizations selected by The Council's Grant Committee.

The Trustees' Council Grant Program is available to an individual who, or organization that, promotes the following:

  • 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 Trustees' Council Grant Committee 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, please contact Jeannie Williams at (215) 898-7811 or stop by the Sweeten Alumni House, 3533 Locust Walk, 2nd floor. Applications must be submitted no later than November 30, 2001. Awards will be announced during the first quarter of 2002 and funds will be distributed thereafter.
