Internal Grant Program

Woman teaching

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Internal Grant program allows Bellarmine faculty, staff and students to request financial support for DEI initiatives on campus or to engage the broader Louisville community. Such initiatives include, but are not limited to, inviting guest speakers, developing symposia, or purchasing materials for community-focused initiatives.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by the President’s Advisory Board on Equity and Inclusion using the following criteria:

  1. the overall purpose and goals of the project;
  2. the project’s connection to Strategic Priority #4;
  3. the project’s connection to Bellarmine’s mission; and
  4. the project’s outcomes and evaluation plan.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to apply for the DEI Internal Grant program here, using the criteria further outlined in the rubric.
