Request for Proposals

The Women’s Philanthropy Council seeks to fund critical needs, new ventures, and innovative solutions to social problems. In particular, the council hopes to award grants that will advance its belief that all members of the Indiana University community should have access to quality educational opportunities, excellent health care, a clean and safe environment, cultural enrichment through the arts, and educational programs and services that allow them to pursue their academic careers. Applications that propose to give back and provide unique opportunities to the university community are especially welcome.

The WPC expects to award up to $100,000 in grants during this academic year’s granting cycle. Awards may range from $2,500 to $25,000.

All Indiana University community members on all campuses—students, faculty, and staff—with the vision and capacity to manage and effectively utilize a grant are encouraged to apply.
