Funding Opportunities

Looking for Additional Funding?

Are you faculty/staff or a student looking to host an event related to our AY20-21 theme of Global Perspectives on Transformation? We want to encourage and support multiple perspectives that provoke thought and action on this timely and timeless imperative:

  • What does Transformation mean to you?
  • Where is it found, pursued, and expressed in history, literature, the arts, and the sciences?
  • How can you engage with this concept in ways that expand students’ knowledge and skills?

We support the work of clubs, programs, centers, and instructors through small grants (not to exceed $400) to members of the campus community that enrich students’ University experience. We seek to emphasize the interdisciplinary and international nature of a Sacramento State education through continual engagement with compelling problems and big ideas.

Previous OWI-sponsored offerings have included:

  • panel discussions with guest speakers,
  • student receptions following remarks by a visiting scholar,
  • student fashion shows,
  • dance recitals,
  • networking and community building events, etc.

OWI encourages Sac State community members to explore the theme through the lenses of particular disciplinary practices, knowledge base, and research interests. Co-curricular experiences are also encouraged. We are proud of the range and quality of events we have sponsored, most of which are open to the public.
