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. Jennifer Purvis, 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, Laura Tamberelli at latamber@uncc.edu, which will be posted SEWSA’s website.

Applications should be submitted via email to Dr. Jennifer Purvis, President, at jpurvis@ua.edu. Selected recipients will be notified by February 16, 2018.
