ODE Grants for Chapter Projects

2013-2014

FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE, UP TO $1500, TO SUPPORT SPECIAL PROJECTS OF ACTIVE CHAPTERS. THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA APPLY:

  • All funding must support activities of an active ODE chapter.

  • Priority will be given to proposals where the chapter actively seeks outside matching funding and where multiple chapters are involved. Matching funds may come from students, the institution, or outside sources.

  • The maximum grant is $1000 for chapter without matching funds.  Ode will match one-for-one any external funds obtained by the chapter for the project up to an additional $500.  The maximum grant from ODE is therefore $1000 without matching funds and $1500 with $500 in matching funds provided by the chapter. The maximum grant from ODE is $1500 thus supporting a $2000 project.

  • First priority will be given to projects that enhance student development in economics, such as:

    • sponsorship of an outside speaker;

    • activities that encourage scholarly interaction between students and faculty;

    • support of student-produced newsletters, tutoring, community service.

    • Travel may be supported, with priority for student presentations at conferences. Preference is for trips that involve a number of students. Trips to visit an economic institution, such as a regional Fed, receive lower priority.

Grants will not be provided for capital expenditures, initiation dinners, chapter meetings, student wages, etc. Chapters may not receive support for two consecutive years.

Application Process:

All applications must include:

1.  A description of the activity/project, with dates, participants, and anticipated outcome for the chapter and students.

2.  A detailed budget, including all sources of funds.

One EXAMPLE of a well-thought out and clearly presented proposal comes from Clarion University.

NEW GRANT OPPORTUNITY: The ACHS (Association of College Honor Societies) has announced a new grant program. ODE chapter advisors are eligible to apply for a grant under the Adviser Grant Program. The goal of this grant program is to encourage the development of Honors Councils of university registered honor society chapters at educational institutions for the purpose of developing university-wide collaboration on co-curriculum high impact practices, functional organizational activities (organizational business and meetings), and support for honor society advisers and officers. Four $1000 grants are available for pilot projects to achieve these objectives. For more information, go to achsnatl.org/social-responsibility/grant-program.asp.


Omicron Delta Epsilon is proud to be a member of ACHS
