BLOOMINGTON, IND. -- The Indiana University Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of the application window for the 2022-2023 Women's Philanthropy Leadership Council (WPLC) and Queer Philanthropy Circle (QPC) grant cycle.
All Indiana University community members, including students, faculty, and staff with a vision and capacity to manage grant money are eligible to apply for WPLC or QPC grant funding. Applications for WPLC or QPC grants will be accepted through March 1, 2022.
Women’s Philanthropy Leadership Council Grants
Each year, the WPLC awards a spectrum of university initiatives that seek to better Indiana University and the communities it supports. Since the program's inception in 2012, the WPLC has awarded nearly $1.3 million to more than 130 projects across all of Indiana University's campuses. Grant awards may range from $2,500 to $25,000. Last year, 14 programs spanning seven campuses received funding.
Awards are given to programs that impact diverse constituents, particularly those with historic disadvantages, to establish a more equitable and inclusive environment to Indiana University. Successful applicants will request support for their diversity initiatives by focusing efforts on one or more of the following areas:
- Improving public health
- Creating service-learning experiences, global and/or domestic, for IU students
- Supporting leadership initiatives
- Promoting and advancing STEM disciplines
- Providing educational and cultural enrichment to the greater IU community
- Developing a culture of philanthropy to benefit the IU community
Applications should be submitted online on the WPLC’s page.
