SVSU Foundation Resource Grant Program

The Resource Grant Program encourages innovation and enrichment of opportunities for students by providing “start-up” funds for new or one-time programs or projects. Grant proposals are reviewed by an evaluation committee, which is composed of appointed members of the SVSU Foundation Board of Directors. All projects must involve and benefit SVSU students.

The Sponsored Programs staff will assist you with preparing your proposals for submission to the SVSU Foundation. Please contact Melissa Woodward (x4295) to get started. The online application is available HERE.

Established in 1998 by the SVSU Foundation Board of Directors, the Resource Grant Program awards funds generated by distributions from the SVSU Foundation Resource Fund Endowment.
