Social Justice Mini-Grant
The Social Justice Mini Grant Application is currently under review for the 2017-2018 academic year. At this time, if you have any questions, please contact Finance Committee Chair Sean Harrington: firstname.lastname@example.org
The description of the SJMG for the last academic year (2016-2017) is included below as a reference:
The Social Justice Mini-Grant is an initiative from NC State Student Government aimed to support students in hosting educational programming on social justice topics. Just as NC State’s motto is “Think and Do”, SG knows that it’s important to act on values of diversity and social justice. Students may apply for fund for any educational event that meets the following requirements:
- Is focused on social justice issues.
The review committee defines social justice as “the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities.” (National Association of Social Workers)
- Is open to the NC State community at large
The format of the event must reasonably accommodate participation from interested parties on campus, including students, faculty and staff.
- Is a collaborative effort.
The event must have at least two sponsoring student organizations. Preference will be granted to events demonstrating an earnest effort to represent multiple perspectives.
The review committee will assess every application on a rolling basis and determine an award of $0, $50, $100, $150 or $200 for the related event. Applicants may be contacted for further information. Student Government is willing to assist with minor details for the event in addition to funding.
The proposal must be made by the last day of classes.
While there is no specific deadline for applications (besides the end of the semester and when funds are depleted), the SJMG committee urges student organizations to submit proposals sooner than later for best results.
