Legacy Grant Application Form

In response to the Class of 2013's successful Senior Class Gift campaign challenge, University Trustee Drake Behrakis '86 has donated $25,000 to fund innovative ideas and creative student projects at BC. Legacy Grants are limited to $2,500 per project.

We are looking for projects that impact the lives of others – from individuals to whole communities. Projects that inspire change, that serve others and exemplify the Jesuit teachings of being “men and women for others.” Ideally the grant is used to jumpstart a great idea that lacks funding or pushes a partially funded idea over the top in terms of its impact. Projects that are well thought out and are sustainable over time are preferred.

Grants will be awarded in April.

Funding requests for the April Legacy Grants are due to the evaluation committee by February 24, 2014.

The evaluation committee is comprised of administrators from the Office of Mission and Ministry, the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of University Advancement as well as four students who have been nominated to the committee by faculty, staff, and administrators. The evaluation committee will review all applications and conduct interviews with finalists.

Please complete the form below to submit your formal application for a Legacy Grant.**

**Grant winners should be prepared to report on their project twice during their award period, once at the midpoint of the project and once more upon its conclusion. Midway progress reports should report on the status of your project to date, any changes you have made to your proposal, and an accounting of spending to date. Final reports will discuss what was accomplished, how it impacted others, how it relates to your studies and ambitions, and your future plans as they relate to what you learned in working on this project. Supporting visual evidence, such as pictures, audio, and/or video, are required in your final report.

Thank you for your application.
