The purpose of the College of Arts and Sciences Career Development Mini-Grants are to help fund special programs, projects, or events sponsored by departments in the College of Arts and Sciences with the goal of promoting career development for students. Examples of programs or events that promote student career development include: alumni panels, employer or corporate recruiter information sessions, or other career-related initiatives for students. Mini-grant funding may be used for food, room reservations, or other materials that are needed to implement the program. Funding may be provided for one-time or ongoing events up to $500 during the 2015-2016 academic year.


We are now accepting proposals for the 2015-16 academic year.

All units of the College of Arts and Sciences are eligible to submit proposals for new or existing career development efforts. Successful proposals will clearly identify how the project or program will benefit students.  Departments may only receive one Career Development Mini-Grant per academic year. While proposals that benefit graduate students are accepted, it is preferable for career development efforts to support career development for undergraduate students.


Funding requests will be accepted on a rolling basis. Requests for funding must be received 30 days in advance of the proposed project date. Applicants will be notified of selection within two weeks of proposal submission.

If your proposal is funded, all expenses related to this event should be paid from the department's budget. Once all bills have been paid through the department, they may be submitted at one time to Adrienne Jablonski using the Request for Reimbursement Form .
