The Office of Global Activities (OGA) offers funding to students who would like to propose and plan an event with a Global theme, for Global Social Work Week or any other time of the year.
Student events that have been proposed and funded in the past include showing a documentary with a global focus and hosting a discussion afterward or organizing a panel of social workers who work (or have done work) abroad. Events are not limited to these categories and we encourage students to get creative and propose something new.
Two grants of up to $250 are available annually. Although applications are taken on an on-going basis, requests for a Global Social Work week event must be received at least 14 days prior to the date proposed of event using the Program Request Form below and must meet the specified funding requirements.
Grants of up to $2,000 are available to graduate and professional school students and faculty for the purpose of planning and conducting research-related conferences, symposia, and workshops in area and international studies. Applications must be submitted at least 30 days in advance of the proposed activity.
