Tuesday, Feb. 16, 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. To be considered for a grant, all application guidelines must be followed.

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 2016, Women & Philanthropy has allocated $75,000 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 Thomas McGlaughlin. 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 computer 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, an electronic event sign, and a student-family room in the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning.

In eight years, Women & Philanthropy has gifted $298,047 in 14 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.
