Martin Luther King Jr.

Submit funding requests for MLK programming

The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee is accepting funding requests for programming in honor of the 2019 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, featuring speaker LaToya Ruby Frazier.

Case Western Reserve University departments, student organizations, offices and centers are encouraged to apply for funding for events or programs that relate to:

  • The MLK week theme, “Through the Lens of Our Stories: The King Legacy Today;”
  • The topics presented by the convocation speaker; or
  • The values King embodied.

Priority will be given to programs offered from Jan. 21 through February.

Co-sponsorships for events can range from $100 to $2,000. Past co-sponsorships have helped support speakers, films, displays, workshops, receptions, lunches and field trips.

The deadline to submit funding requests is Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 5 p.m.

View the CampusGroups page for more details and application instructions.
