2015-2016 Request for Proposals

The OSU Women’s Giving Circle invites you to submit a proposal for grants that will be awarded in May 2015. The Giving Circle was founded in spring 2003 by a group of OSU alumnae and friends who pooled their gifts to create a fund to support Oregon State University programs.


Submission Requirements

Please complete all questions listed on the Grant Application. If you are seeking to renew a previous grant, please also complete the Grant Renewal Request Form. Grants are available to fund programs at OSU, including programs within OSU-Cascades, Oregon 4-H and OSU Extension.

Deadline for submitting proposals: Friday, January 16, 2015. If you have questions please contact Kellie Parker at 541-737-4691 or 800-354-7281.


Selection Process

In February finalists will be selected for site visits. In addition to the previous criteria, the site visit team also will explore:

  • What difference or impact will the grant make for OSU students?
  • Is the proposal viable?
  • What makes the proposal compelling?
  • Is the grant amount appropriate?  Should it be increased or decreased?

A greater number of grant proposals will be submitted for voting than can be funded, so one or more proposals will be eliminated in the voting process.  In mid-April 2015, Giving Circle members will vote to make the final grant selections. Awards will be announced and funds available in May 2015. Funds must be used in entirety by June 2016.
