DEI Grant Program

The DEI Grant Program allows Molloy administrators, faculty, staff, and students to request financial support for on-campus DEI initiatives. Initiatives might include, but are not limited to, inviting guest speakers, hosting an event on campus, or purchasing materials. The maximum amount for each grant request is $300. Student requests must be supported by an administrator, faculty member, or staff member.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed by the Vice President for DEI and members of the DEI Committee using the following criteria (see Evaluation Rubric for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Grant Application): 

  1. the overall purpose and goals of the proposal;
  2. the proposal’s connection to advancing strategic priority 1: Building our university community and creating a pervasive culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion;
  3. the proposal’s connection to Molloy’s mission; and
  4. the proposal’s outcomes and evaluation plan.

Administrators, faculty, staff, and students are invited to apply for the DEI Grant Program using the following link: https://forms.office.com/r/htS4Syw4A5. The application closes once allocated annual funds are exhausted.
