Inspiration Grants
 
Inspiration Grants are available for recognized UW Stevens Point student organizations to promote service-oriented programs and social justice concepts. Grant funds are provided as a component of the campus vending contract with Canteen, Inc. Each year, Canteen, Inc. generously provides $5,000 to student organizations who seek to increase the involvement of UW Stevens Point students in service and social justice issues.
 
Applications need to be submitted by the second Tuesday of each month to be given consideration. Awards will be made by the third Tuesday of each month.  Plan for a minimum of two weeks to receive awards once approved.

DISCLAIMER

The University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point does not endorse events funded through the Inspiration Grant fund.

Applicants and co-sponsors are responsible for event planning.

An Inspiration Grant proposal is a written contract between the student organization and UWSP; as such, if an organization does not adhere to the policy guidelines, this will be deemed a breach of contract. If misconduct is found prior to the event, funding for the event will cease and the organization will be referred to the Student Organization Conduct Board.  If funds are dispersed and then misconduct is identified, the student organization will be referred to the Student Organization Conduct Board for review.
