Call for proposals: Cultural Events Committee
August 21, 2023
The Cultural Events Committee invites all ISU faculty members to submit a funding application for cultural events that serve any ISU community
An ISU faculty member is any person who holds faculty status at the time of the submission. An ISU community includes any of the ISU campuses, surrounding communities, or an online event that is accessible to campus(es) and surrounding communities.
The committee understands “cultural event” to mean any event that celebrates human creativity or human experience, with particular attention to human diversity and its relevance, from the perspectives of the arts, the humanities, or those aspects of the social sciences, the sciences, and technology which have artistic or humanistic content and employ artistic or humanistic methods.
The committee has two grant programs that are used to help sponsor appropriate events.
Mini-grants are for funds up to $1000, and large grants are for $1000 and above. The committee has a total of $11,000 to distribute for the 2023-2024 fiscal year.
If you are planning a cultural event to take place in the new fiscal year (July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024), submit your application form via the CEC website by Friday, September 15, 2023. For additional information, see the call for proposals on the CEC website. You may also contact Susan Goslee, the committee chair, with any questions.
