 Call for Proposals - Pepsi Enhancement Funds Fall 2018


Each semester the Review Committee for the Pepsi Enhancement Fund send out a call for proposals for program funding. At this time, I would like to encourage you to submit proposals for programs and events that will occur during the 2018 fall semester, Monday, August 27, 2018 through Friday, December 7, 2018.

A $50,000 fund, generously provided by PepsiCo, will be used to underwrite the cost of programs that broadly affect the campus population. For spring 2018, we received 159 proposals and we were able to award 87 grants. Some of the programs receiving funding include Gamer Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert, Graduate Research Appreciation Day, Overnight Stay Program, Big 10 Bhangra Competition, and UMD Solar Decathlon Assembly and Testing. Each of the proposals will be measured by the following criteria:

1. Will the event/program contribute to the creation of campus community?

2. Will the event/program appeal to a wide audience of campus citizens?

3. Will the event/program contribute to the advancement of the academic mission of the University?

4. Will the event/program enhance the co-curriculum, enlarging opportunities for leadership, cultural and social exchange, and service to the University and broader community?

I invite you to submit a proposal online at prior to Monday, March 5, 2018 by 5:00 p.m. All proposals must be completed online and a response is required to all of the questions detailed on the form. The Pepsi Review Committee will review all proposals by the end of April. Departments and organizations will be notified of their award status following the Review Committee meeting and the funds will be available at the start of the fall semester. Please note, in order to accommodate the greatest number of groups in our funding process, a sponsoring organization may not submit more than two (2) proposals per semester.

Thank you, in advance, for submitting your proposal for Pepsi Enhancement Funds. Should you have any questions, I invite you to call my office at 301-314-8491.
