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. 

Preference will be given to applications from teams of two individuals representing diverse backgrounds (e.g., an instructor and student, or individuals from different clubs, races, religions or nationalities). 

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

2. 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.

3. One member of a grant recipient’s project team is required to attend an informational meeting to learn how to access grant funding. Funds will not be distributed if at least one project team member does not attend the meeting or meet with the assigned BPA liaison.
