BLI Small Grants - 2019/2020
Open: Small Grant Application opens September 5, 2019
BLI Small Grants are intended to (1) stimulate learning about leadership through practice, (2) encourage and support student initiative, and (3) seed innovative projects that will contribute to the Institute, campus community, and/or society.
With a rolling application deadline and speedy review process, small grants give BLI members the opportunity to receive up to $400 to support short-term projects or events. Funds may be used to support individual or student organization initiatives. Applications received before Wednesday at midnight will receive a response the following Wednesday.
Leadership for Peace
Small Grant applicants may apply for up to $100 of additional funding through the Leadership for Peace Initiative. The BLI Leadership for Peace Initiative aims to cultivate active citizens of the world who can utilize research and critical thinking skills to engage with different cultural perspectives and make a positive impact in the global community.
The BLI Small Grant is available to all BLI Members enrolled in the Leadership Lab, Leadership Fellows and Advanced Leadership Fellows.
A student may only apply for one BLI Small Grant per semester. It is permissible to apply more than one Small Grant for the same project in different semesters. We also encourage students who receive small grants to apply for the BLI Project Grant (up to $2000) to further their projects.
