ODE Grants for Chapter Projects

2018-2019

FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE, UP TO $1000, TO SUPPORT SPECIAL PROJECTS OF ACTIVE CHAPTERS. THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA APPLY:

  • All funding must support activities of an active ODE chapter.

  • Priority will be given to proposals where the chapter actively seeks outside matching funding and where multiple chapters are involved. Matching funds may come from students, the institution, or outside sources.

  • The maximum grant is $500 for chapters without matching funds.  Ode will match one-for-one any external funds obtained by the chapter for the project up to an additional $500.  The maximum grant from ODE is therefore $500 without matching funds and $1000 with $500 in matching funds provided by the chapter. The maximum grant from ODE is $1000 thus supporting a $1500 project.

  • First priority will be given to projects that enhance student development in economics, such as:

    • sponsorship of an outside speaker;

    • activities that encourage scholarly interaction between students and faculty;

    • support of student-produced newsletters, tutoring, community service.

    • Travel may be supported, with priority for student presentations at conferences. Preference is for trips that involve a number of students. Trips to visit an economic institution, such as a regional Fed, receive lower priority.

Grants will not be provided for capital expenditures, initiation dinners, chapter meetings, student wages, etc. Chapters may not receive support for two consecutive years.

Application Process:

All applications must include:

1.  A description of the activity/project, with dates, participants, and anticipated outcome for the chapter and students.

2.  A detailed budget, including all sources of funds.

One EXAMPLE of a well-thought out and clearly presented proposal comes from Clarion University.

Chapters receiving an award must submit a brief report, along with receipts that account for all grant funds. Submit written proposals to:
