The Weekend Life Grant has been developed to enhance the quality of Weekend Life at
Stony Brook University. Weekend Life includes any event held Friday through Sunday.Funding may be granted to student groups and University Departments that provide scholastic, recreational, spiritual, intellectual, cultural, political and social opportunities for interaction through exceptional programming. Stony Brook continues to encourage and support student programs and challenges groups to expand their horizons by implementing new and innovative weekend programs.
The Weekend Life Programming Grant supports efforts that are new and creative, and create a level of enthusiasm among the campus community. Program submissions should inspire school spirit, bridge multicultural relations and foster collaboration among students, faculty and staff.
The following are the goals of the grant:
• to develop a sense of community and school spirit on the weekends
• to foster creativity, innovation and enthusiasm
• to heighten interest in multicultural relations
• to bridge communication and encourage networking through collaboration
• to support events that are scheduled on the weekends (Friday-Sunday)
FUNDING & SELECTION
The Weekend Life Grant Committee meets three times a semester and will review submissions based on the date of the event. Weekend Life Grant Requests can be submitted at any time for events during the fall and spring semester but should not be submitted last minute. Typically all applications should be submitted at least a month prior to the scheduled events to be considered for funding. The Weekend Life Grant Committee offers assistance for Weekend Life programs and should not be considered the only source of funding for your program.
