The Institute for the Liberal Arts at Boston College is accepting proposals for projects that will be funded during the 2019-2020 academic year in two categories: minor grants & major grants.

Major grant   Due to continuing uncertainty about when public events will be possible again, the ILA will not be accepting Major Grant proposals in fall, 2020 (for events to take place in the 2021 academic year).  We will make an announcement later this year about whether or not we will accept Major Grant proposals this spring (for AY 2021 events).  We will continue to consider Minor Grant proposals for the current academic year.  Anyone interested in applying for a Minor Grant should email Mary Crane to discuss the feasibility of what they are proposing.

Minor grant proposals do not need as much lead time and may be submitted in the same semester that the project will be carried out.

Innovations in Graduate Education proposals to pilot new programs that will improve graduate education at Boston College are due April 15, 2020.

CWBC Colloquium Fellowships in keeping with the CWBC Colloquium mission, are designed to advance women’s leadership by providing funds to help offset the costs of an unpaid summer internship that either (1) provide a position with an organization (or part of an organization) focused on advancing issues related to women’s leadership, or (2) promote the leadership skills of individual women.
