Application Deadline and Timeline: Two award cycles are available. Applications received by the summer deadline of September 1, 2021 will be considered for fall funding; applications received by January 1, 2022 will be considered for spring funding. Unless other arrangements are approved by the EEASC Board of Directors, Mini-Grant expenses project work, and reporting should be completed within six months of the award.

Review and Evaluation Process: The EEASC Awards and Recognition Committee will evaluate grant proposals using a standardized rubric and will recommend a slate of Mini-Grant recipients to the EEASC Board for approval following each application deadline. Upon Board approval, the EEASC Awards Committee Chair will notify applicants as to the status of their applications.
Reimbursements: Mini-Grant recipients will receive an award notification letter with instructions/guidance for completing a reimbursement request form and final report. Upon receipt of a signed reimbursement request form from the awardee and approval by the Awards Committee Chair, the EEASC Administrator will remit reimbursement check(s) to the winner(s).
