Submit a proposal to improve student life! The Graduate Student Life Grants program is a request-for-proposal process inviting graduate students, spouses, faculty, or staff to submit creative, community building ideas for possible funding. Students are encouraged to apply for funds – especially in collaboration with other students or student groups. Proposals may address a specific constituency such as families; they may cross departments or focus within a discipline; and they may even target several residence halls, or a variety of student groups. Their purpose should be to explore the role and relevance of community in creating a more balanced and fulfilling graduate experience. Previous successful grants include Weekly Wednesdays at the Muddy Charles, Teaching MIT to Code and Collaborate, Science Policy Bootcamp, Ballroom Dance Workshop, and Skydive Saturday. Proposal authors will have the opportunity to answer any questions from the selection panel. The application deadline is midnight on Friday, October 17, 2014, and funds will be released in early December 2014. For more details visit the GSLG webpage. Photo by Arts at MIT.
