Parents Leadership Council Accepting Grant Proposals for Student Life

UGA Parent's Leadership Council

The University of Georgia Parents and Families Association and its Parents Leadership Council are accepting grant proposals for the 2014-2015 academic year.  Annually grant applications are accepted for consideration from UGA schools, colleges, units, departments, divisions or recognized student organizations registered with the department of campus life.


Donations to the Parents and Family Fund are used to provide grants to University schools, colleges, units, departments/divisions or recognized student organizations for projects and programs which enhance the quality of life for undergraduates.  This grant process serves as a primary focus of the UGA Parents and Families Association. 


Since 2002, the council has funded more than $1 million in grants to programs and organizations on campus, including the Counseling and Psychiatric Services Center at the University Health Center, the Office of International Education and the Office of Student Financial Aid.


Grant awards demonstrate a direct and positive impact on student life at UGA. Grants will be awarded in the spring by a committee established by the Parents Leadership Council.
