Minor Grants

The ILA welcomes proposals for projects to be undertaken during the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 academic years that require smaller amounts of funding up to $2,500. Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis until all funds are committed. Proposals should be submitted to Mary Crane via email cranem@bc.edu and should include a one-page description of the proposal and a budget.

These grants can help fund a conference or symposium that has the majority of its funding from another source. They can be used to bring in a speaker, or can fund activities related to a performance or museum exhibit, or other events that require less than $2,500. They will not normally fund travel and cannot be used to pay for equipment. Preference will be given to interdisciplinary proposals and to proposals that involve Boston College students in some way.

For help determining your budget and amount to request, please see our Budget Guidelines.
