Monday, Feb. 19, is the deadline to submit an application for a grant from Women & Philanthropy at The University of Toledo.
UT staff, faculty and students from all campuses are eligible to apply. Women & Philanthropy grant applications are available here.
The Women & Philanthropy Grants Committee will review and evaluate the applications, and the general membership will vote to determine the recipient(s). Grant amounts vary from year to year.
For 2018, Women & Philanthropy has allocated up to $76,000 to award in grants for UT projects and programs.
Grant recipients will be announced in May.
The inaugural grant, in the amount of $15,000, was awarded in 2008 to Carlson Library to commission a glass sculpture by artist Tom McGlauchlin. That sculpture titled “A University Woman” is on display in the library concourse and has become the model for the Women & Philanthropy logo.
Since then, Women & Philanthropy has funded classrooms; an art gallery; locker room enhancements; a sensory-friendly medical examination room; the hospitality area in the William and Carol Koester Alumni Pavilion; renovations to the Savage Arena media room; computer-based educational displays in Ritter Planetarium and Lake Erie Center; a computer lab in the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women; a playground at the Kobacker Center; a student-family room in University College; an interactive periodic table display; and a Genetics Analysis Instrumentation Center.
In 10 years, Women & Philanthropy has gifted nearly $425,000 in 17 grants to The University of Toledo. Women & Philanthropy is able to give substantial gifts to the University by pooling its members’ resources and making monetary awards in the form of grants.
