Some 10 projects across the University of Colorado system have been awarded Diversity and Excellence Grants for 2012.
The review committee for Diversity and Excellence Grants met in late 2011 and recommended funding for 10 of the 23 proposals submitted. Overall, a total of $26,800 was awarded.
Diversity and Excellence Grants are designed to provide assistance for projects initiated by staff and/or faculty who promote diversity, inclusion and excellence on the CU campuses. Multiple awards of up to $3,000 each are made annually; decisions finalized by a review committee representative of each of the system’s four campuses. Funding is granted for a maximum of one year; however, projects demonstrating progress may be resubmitted for consideration for continued funding. Priority consideration is extended to submissions that promote and encourage cross-institutional collaboration; have a broad impact and leverage additional resources.
This year, proposals received from Anschutz Medical Campus, University of Colorado Denver and University of Colorado Colorado Springs were funded. For a listing of 2012 Diversity and Excellence Grant recipients and their programs, please visit the CU system diversity web page.
