Nearly a dozen programs affiliated with five Indiana University campuses and one regional center have been awarded a total of $105,000 in grants by the IU Women’s Philanthropy Leadership Council. This year’s grants range from $3,000 to $20,000 to support various projects.
IU says the money supports projects that aim to improve public health, support women’s leadership initiatives, increase opportunities for diverse and underserved populations, and provide global experiences. Out of 28 applicants, the recipients come from IU Bloomington, IU East, IU Kokomo, IUPUI, IUPUC and IU South Bend.
"We were impressed by the applications we received, which reflect the creativity and commitment of the applicants to IU students, the IU community, our state and beyond," said council member Judy Summerville. "It is a challenging process to select awardees as we receive more worthy applications than we can currently fund."
The university says three applicants received an additional $25,000 in funding thanks to a partnership with the Well House Society. This year’s grant recipients include:
- Workplace Simulation Project, Center for P-16 Research and Collaboration at IU Bloomington
