Each semester the Review Committee for the Pepsi Enhancement Fund sends out a call for proposals for program funding. At this time, we encourage you to submit proposals for the Spring 2021 term. The programs and events must occur during January 25 - May 11, 2021.
A $50,000 fund, generously provided by PepsiCo, will be used to underwrite the cost of programs that broadly affect the campus population. For Fall 2020, we received 69 proposals, and we were able to award 58 grants. Some of the programs receiving funding include Womxn in Symposium, Kidney Disease Screening Event, Careers in Communication, Technica Hacks, Mental Health Awareness Week, and Dorm Room Decorating with Studio A.
Each of the proposals will be measured by the following criteria:
1. Will the event/program contribute to the creation of campus community?
2. Will the event/program appeal to a wide audience of campus citizens?
3. Will the event/program contribute to the advancement of the academic mission of the University?
4. Will the event/program enhance the co-curriculum, enlarging opportunities for leadership, cultural and social exchange, and service to the University and broader community?
