Clay Grants: The original OΔK grant to circles, the Clay Grants are awarded to circles who seek to provide leadership and personal development on their campus through the circle. The critical words to consider are “leadership development.”
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Grants: This year, two grants are dedicated to programs that support the leadership development of historically underrepresented and marginalized populations or seek to bring leaders together to address issues of racial and ethnic injustice in their campus community. Grants may be as much as $750.00.
Application System – We will continue to use Kaleidoscope for Clay and Diversity grant submission this year. Be sure to join us for the webinar to learn how this system works.
Circle Grants: Circles that have raised $10,000 for their circle through OΔK are eligible for a grant of up to $500 each year. Eligible circles are contacted directly by OΔK staff but must receive approval for the use of their funds. Circle Grants are available to the following circles:
- Auburn University (Omega Circle) $1000
- University of Richmond (Epsilon Circle) $500
- Washington and Lee University (Alpha Circle) $750
