Institutional Mini-Grants

Application Deadline: 

February 22, 2019

Institutional members may apply for mini-grants to support activities that further the mission of their program and SEWSA. Special consideration will be given to events with speakers/scholars from the region.

Awards up to $500 per grant will be made. Only two grants per year will be awarded.  

Award-winning events will be featured on the SEWSA website. SEWSA is to be credited as a sponsor of the event. A statement that acknowledges that the Southeastern Women’s Studies Association (SEWSA) has sponsored or co-sponsored the event should appear on all promotional material.

The application will consist of the following:

  • Formal request to Dr. Phyllis Thompson, SEWSA President

  • One-page description of the event stating needs for funding and how SEWSA will be acknowledged

When an institution is awarded a grant, SEWSA’s archives should receive a copy of relevant publicity as should the Director of Communications & Marketing, Ashley McFarland at ashley.mcfarland@kennesaw.edu, which will be posted SEWSA’s website.

Applications are due by February 1, 2020. Applications should be submitted via email to Dr. Phyllis Thompson, President, at thompsop@mail.etsu.edu. Recipients will be notified on March 1, 2020.


Congratulations to our 2019 winners!
