CALL FOR PROPOSALS
2013-2014 Greer-Oppenheimer Program Grants
Submission Deadline:  5 pm, Thursday, April 11, 2013

I. PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

The Florence Hull Greer and Julius J. Oppenheimer Committee are seeking proposals for programs for the 2012-2013 academic year.  Funding is provided with the understanding that each program will underscore the philosophy of the General Education Program as stated in the University of Central Missouri Undergraduate Catalog:  “to provide students the opportunity to enhance the skills of the intellect; expand their knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the arts, natural sciences, technology, social sciences, literature, and the humanities; and contribute to the improvement of human interactions.”

II. SCOPE OF PROPOSALS

We are accepting proposals for public lectures/demonstrations, performing and visual arts, interdisciplinary projects, multiple presentations, a program of varied activities, a plan for student/faculty symposia, conferences, outside speakers, film studies, and other activities within the confines of the General Education Program.

Funds are limited.  The likelihood of full or partial funding of proposals is influenced by fiscal constraints, and the quality and number of proposals received. Funded project(s) will receive the granted monies shortly after the start of the fiscal year.

III. PROPOSAL APPLICATION PROCESS

Successful applicants will submit a prospectus, which proposes a program of interest to the general academic community and which is aimed at invigorating and enhancing the intellectual and cultural climate of the university and its constituency.

Your proposal must address the general guidelines outlined above and result in a public program.  Sample proposals will be on file in the office of the Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The Greer-Oppenheimer Committee will make its decision on the basis of merit of the proposal and the availability of funds.  Electronic versions of all materials are required and must be submitted as a single document to geiger@ucmo.edu no later than 5 pm, Thursday April 11th, 2013.

IV. COMMITTEE EXPECTATIONS

The Greer-Oppenheimer Committee hopes that each presentation will expand appreciation for diverse learning within the academic community and foster dialogue between and within individual areas of specialization.  For application form, please go to 2013-2014 Application. Any questions may be directed to geiger@ucmo.edu.
