Submit MLK Week Celebration funding requests by Dec. 13

The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee is accepting funding requests for programming in honor of the annual MLK Week Celebration. The 2016 event, themed “Reflections on the Movement: The Urgency of Then and Now,” will run from Friday, Jan. 15, to Friday, Jan. 22.

Departments, student organizations, offices and centers are encouraged to apply for funding for events or programs that relate to the MLK week theme, the ideas presented by the convocation speaker, or the values that Dr. King embodied. Priority will be given for programs taking place during MLK Week, but relevant programming that takes place in January or February also will be considered as funding allows.

Co-sponsorships of 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 Sunday, Dec. 13, at 11:59 p.m. Requests can be submitted online.

Contact Angela Lowery, associate director of the Center for Civic Engagement and Learning, at with any questions about the funding request process.
