Any Indiana University student, faculty, staff, or unit are invited to share your ideas with the IU Black Philanthropy Circle by submitting a BPC grant application. Your application should specifically focus on the ways in which the Black community at IU will be supported by your project. We are looking for proposals that aim to make IU a more equitable, welcoming, and accessible university for the Black community. Applications for the annual grant cycle are available between November 1st and February 1st for the following academic year. Projects ranging from $2,000-$7,000 have been previously awarded. (Funds from the Queer Philanthropy Circle and/or the Women’s Philanthropy Leadership Council are requested on the same application.)
