Chapter Activity Grants

Alpha Chi has expanded its chapter activity funding program, and we’re excited to offer national grants of up to $500 to help chapters finance a variety of events and activities in 2021-22! With broader categories than ever before, we hope your chapter will find one to suit your local student body and the spirit of your particular Alpha Chi chapter.

With a fund of $3,500 for the fall and $3,500 for the spring, Alpha Chi invites competitive applications for activities to be held during the 2021-22 academic year. Proposals for activities within the month of application will be evaluated as they’re received. Allow at least two weeks between application date and proposed event date.

Applications will be evaluated by a selection committee under the guidance of the Executive Director. If there are areas of the application that need clarification or could be improved, guidance will be provided to the applicant within one week so that the application may be reconsidered. Funding will be granted based on the extent to which a planned activity:

  • Encourages student scholarship and creativity
  • Promotes the visibility of Alpha Chi among your student body and/or local community
  • Promotes the importance of engaging in civil discourse on humanitarian issues, educational topics, and real-world problems
  • Gets student members involved in hands-on community service

Applications may be completed by a chapter advisor; however, a compelling benefit of this program is the experience it provides Alpha Chi members. Thus it is highly encouraged (not required) that a student officer or lead member be the chapter representative for purposes of this application. This will provide your students with an opportunity to engage in collaborative planning with staff and peers and practice their grant-writing skills.

Purpose

In order to facilitate scholarly pursuits, member development, and chapter experiences of Alpha Chi members and chapters, this competition provides funds to Alpha Chi chapters to host student-organized activities aligning with Alpha Chi’s emphasis on truth and character and its mission of making scholarship effective for good.
