Programming Grants Initiative

Offering financial and marketing support in the form of grants to individuals and organizations dedicated to helping women learn, grow, and thrive at Georgetown University.

The GWA provides grants to support projects that align with our mission of fostering an environment in which recipients can learn, grow, and thrive as individuals and professionals. Successful projects are those which:

  • Feature research or projects directed by womxn leaders at Georgetown
  • Highlight topics of interest at various stages of personal and professional development
  • Connect staff members at Georgetown across constituencies and academic or professional orientations
  • Encourage cross-campus connections for women at Georgetown

Grant funding may support new initiatives or existing programs. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, programs, lectures, book talks, professional development opportunities, research or other similar events. During this period of remote work and instruction, we will consider only initiatives and programs that can be held virtually. Award amounts will vary based on the scope of the project, mission alignment, total project budget, and other sources of funding. Requests for catering and travel will not be permitted at this time, but we will consider requests for speaker honoraria, program materials (e.g., books, article access fees), and technical support as appropriate.

Examples of programs we have supported: B.RA.V.E. Summit, Own It Summit, GU Women’s Forum 2021, Black at PWI, TedxGeorgetown and many more!

In addition to funding, the Georgetown Women’s Alliance will provide marketing support for your initiative, including email distribution, social media, website placement, and other forms of outreach. Questions? Contact (new window).
