The 2013-2014 Reform on Campus grant, offered in partnership by the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and the Men of Reform Judaism (MRJ), supports and encourages Reform Jewish programming on college and university campuses around the world. The 2013-2014 grant period is closed.
The Reform on Campus grants are for either single or multiple events.
The following is important information about the 2013-2014 Reform on Campus Grant (ROC):
We believe that any program will have better engagement if there is support beyond the Reform on Campus grant. Support can come from another sponsoring organization or from participating students. This could be financial support from an institution such as the university or your campus Hillel. Understanding that finances are often tight for students, support can be requiring a participation fee or, to lower the barrier, a donation such as a non-perishable item to be donated to a food pantry.
A single (one-time) program is eligible for a grant of up to $400 if there is no other outside funding as listed above. However, if there is support from an institution or participating students you are able to request up to $500 in funds.
A series (multiple occurrences) program is eligible for a grant of up to $650 if there is no other outside funding as listed above. However, if there is support from an institution or participating students you are able to request up to $750 in funds.
Applications should be sent six weeks before the proposed event. Please be sure to review the narrative and spreadsheet pages of the application to ensure that the monies requested match and that all of the information has been entered.
Applications are accepted from campus groups located around the world.
Funded programs must occur between August 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014.
Proposed events and programs should support the ideals and practices of Reform Judaism and/or promote the Reform community on campus. Examples include:
Reform Shabbat dinner and song session or Havdalah services
Reform community retreat
Social and cultural programming
Social action projects
Israel/World Jewry activities
Grants may not be used for individual funding.
Advertising for events must recognize the URJ and the MRJ as sponsors.
Funding for this program has been provided by the Reform On Campus grant program of the Men of Reform Judaism.
