Resources for Funding
If you are looking for funding to support an event, please first go through your normal and expected funding channels. If you would like to apply for funds through the YCC budget please review the YCC programming principles and considerations.
- The intent of this fund is to support faculty, staff and students who wish to modify existing or develop new programming that helps Smith creatively and thoughtfully meet and exceed the goals and principles of the Year on Climate Change.
- Programming adds a deep, multi-faceted and unique layer of consideration and examination about the intersection of climate change and other issues and topics, such as gender roles, economic and political models and structures, math and statistics, languages, communications...
- Programming reaches out to, hears from, and is generated with input or participation by Smith community members (students, faculty, staff, alums) who have not historically been represented in the climate change conversation on campus. This could include international or immigrant students’ experiences and perceptions of climate change in their home country or region, pre-health advisers, health center and pre-health students examining the role of healthcare providers and institutions in addressing health-effects of CC, economics faculty and others.
- Programming can include activities such as an art shows, multi-house events, career development and exposure panels, podcasts and more.
As funds are limited, we strongly encourage cross-group collaborations and use of existing, longer-term funding sources listed in the Moneybook, including the Endowed Lecture Fund, educational technology grants, student org funding, SGA funding, curricular enhancement grants, and so on.
