The Longwood Parents Council is now accepting grant proposals for the upcoming year! The Parents Council grants process is open to faculty, staff, students, and student organizations. Grant money can be used for projects that promote learning, citizen leadership, and enhance student life within the University community. Examples include faculty/student research projects, educational programs, and service projects. Information about previously funded grants can be found online at http://www.longwood.edu/parents/parentscouncil.htm.
The Parents Council has approximately $10,000 to award this year with a maximum amount of $2000 awarded per grant proposal. The grant process includes a written proposal followed by a brief presentation (10 minutes) to the Council highlighting the merit of the project. Proposal applications are available online at http://www.longwood.edu/assets/newstudent/Parents_Council_Grant_Proposal_201213.pdf and are due to the Office of First Year Experience & Family Programs by 5:00 pm on Friday, October 5th.
