Call for Proposals - Pepsi Enhancement Funds Spring 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 Spring 2018 term.  The programs and events must occur during January 24 - May 10, 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 Fall 2017, we received 74 proposals and we were able to award 53 grants.  Some of the programs receiving funding include FreeFest, Shabbat 1000, Maryland Minza, Prison Resistance Project, and Gamer Symphony Orchestra Fall Concert. .  

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 5:00 p.m. Monday, September 25, 2017.  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 October.  Departments and organizations receiving funds will be notified following the Review Committee meeting and the funds will be available at the start of the spring 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, please contact me at or at 301-314-8491.
