The Multicultural Office for Student Access, Inclusiveness, and Community (MOSAIC) and the Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusiveness invite proposals for funding from the CU President's Fund for Student Diversity.

The Presidents Fund for Student Diversity supports student programs, events, and travel that enhance ethnic, cultural and gender diversity among University of Colorado students in accord with the UCCS Diversity Strategic Plan. (www.uccs.edu/diversity). Grants to student groups or their members are intended to supplement funding obtained through fundraising and financial support (i.e. SGA, department support, etc.)

Eligible activities include but are not limited to:
  • Exhibits, performances, productions or workshops
  • Cultural celebrations to enhance the university community's knowledge, awareness and appreciation of a broad range of diverse cultures
  • Travel funds to promote student networking, professional development, and participation at relevant state regional, or national conferences
  • Visiting scholars/artists/lecturers

Preference is for well-written proposals that foster collaboration and demonstrate the greatest impact in advancing diversity, inclusiveness and community at UCCS. Proposed expenses must be reasonable and well documented. Funds are limited and will be allocated carefully to provide broad support for student initiatives.

Application Form
Please use the appropriate application form, (Event Form, PDF) or (Travel Form, PDF). Forms can also be obtained by visiting the MOSAIC office, University Center Room 110. Funding requests will be approved by the MOSAIC office in collaboration with the Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity & Inclusiveness.

Report Requirement

  • A written report must be submitted to MOSAIC within two weeks after funded activities have occurred. The report will share information on program outcomes, participation and accounting for expenditures.
  • Awarded recipients are expected to prepare a poster describing what they learned from the funded activity. Posters will be displayed at the MOSAIC End-of-Year Celebration. Recipients are asked to attend the celebration to explain the poster and answer questions.
Registered clubs and organizations that do not follow the program requirements will be required to pay back expended funds and WILL be denied future funding from the Presidents Funds for Student Diversity. Applications in PDF format should first be saved to your computer, filled out, and finally e-mailed to acordova@uccs.edu as an attachment. Additionally, printed applications in word may be brought directly to Anthony Cordova in the University Center, room 110A. However, an electronic copy will still be necessary.
