Grant size will depend on the number and quality of applications, but will usually not exceed $450 and cannot be used for stipends to students, faculty or staff. Grant activities can include events, publications, seminars, workshops, performances, art projects, service projects, and retreats that promote ideas inherent in pluralism and unity at Brandeis.

Shortly after the grant application deadline has passed, the BPA Steering Committee will meet to determine which applications will be funded.  Within two weeks of the application deadline, you will receive an email notification stating whether or not your project has received funding. 

Student grant recipients will be asked to consult with a BPA Steering Committee liaison about project planning and implementation after receiving approval of an award. All grant recipients are required to acknowledge Brandeis Pluralism Alliance grant support in all publicity.
