UCSC Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Co-Funding Program

The Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) is excited to continue its commitment to support UCSC activities, projects and events that reflect its mission to promote a campus that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.

Tier 1 Program: We will continue our existing co-funding program (known as “Tier 1”) where you can receive up to $500 from ODEI to help co-fund your event, activity, or project. This program is available to all campus constituents.

Tier 2 Program: We have modified our Tier 2 program based on the systemwide climate study and consultation with the Senate Committee of Affirmative Action and Diversity (CAAD). This program is designed to provide co-sponsorship for faculty and graduate student projects or recruitment efforts related to advancing diversity and inclusion on campus. Proposals will be awarded up to $1,000 each. The Co-Funding Committee can approve more than two proposals if the requested amounts are less than $1,000.

Society for the Study of Evolution Small Grants Program

SSE especially encourage proposals that focus on discussing and implementing evolution education reforms recommended in the Vision & Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: Chronicling Change, Inspiring the Future (2013) report
